To the editor

Recently there has been much discussion about the failure of our public education.

The real problem is the moral decline in our society. Crime is up, divorces have increased, child abuse is rampant and the use of drugs is common, particularly among our young people. The real problem is that our churches, the moral leaders of our society, have not been held accountable.

The answer is simple. Every church member should be given a $3,000.00 government voucher. If the church he or she attends fails to perfect the moral acts of its parishioners, the individual can use the voucher to attend a more successful church. The competition will make all churches more accountable. Those that do not achieve excellent results will be shut down. This program will establish a moral nation. It will be as effective as our current reforms of our schools.
