Kind of Disappointing

Seems Gov. Palin is effectively against school choice.
On Sept. 9, 2006, the NEA-Alaska asked Palin if she supported the use of vouchers, tax credits, or other programs that provide public money for students to attend private or religious schools.

“No,” Palin said. “It is unconstitutional and it is as simple as that.” She also said she would not support amending the Alaska Constitution.
Although the next paragraph after this says that Gov. Palin "wants to give parents as much choice and as many options as possible for educating their children," there isn't anything specific as to what she means by this.
