Advocates say vouchers for school choice about fairness, not 'handouts'

Hundreds of Catholic school students, parents and other supporters joined a school choice rally Sept. 25 at a Chicago building that houses Illinois state government offices.

The rally was aimed at demonstrating the need for more families to be able to enroll their children in the schools they choose, whether they are Catholic schools, other private schools, charter schools or other public schools.

In most cases, speakers said, the main barriers to school choice are economic.
