Vouchers for Islamic schools. (Letters).

After reading about the controversy over Islamic charter schools in the February issue of Church & State ("Islamic Charter School May Have Violated California Regulations," People & Events), this thought occurred to me: How will Religious Right activists feel when their voucher funds go to these types of schools?

Far-right leaders are wary of President George W. Bush's outreach to the Muslim community, and yet they will have no control over voucher funds going to religious schools, in fact this is the intention. Do they understand that the money will not just go to their religious schools, but to all types of schools?
