Wait, Was That A Threat?
Utah Conservative posted an email from Rep. David Cox. Rep. Cox opposes the "School Choice" reform including vouchers and tuition tax credits. In his email, Rep. Cox insists that vouchers are actually bad for private schools because they will open the door to government regulation and rob private schools of their independence. On the very same website, Rep. Cox insisted he was fighting for local control of public schools. So he'll fight tooth and nail for local control of public schools, but somehow is powerless to prevent the state control of private schools? Considering Rep. Cox is one of the legislators who has the power to force state regulation of private schools, it sounds to me like Rep. Cox is making a threat. It's kind of like being told: "God forbid you should meet an unfortunate accident".
