I think the best test of this would be to see if they would approve of public funding for a Muslim charter school.

Agreed. Or a Jewish school.

Sounds like they would. If you guys are trying to imply that a crypto-KKK runs the Oklahoma schools, just remember that in the 1920's the KKK hated Catholics, too.

Fund whatever can deliver academic results.

I'm all for outsourcing USA public schools.
I need some qualified employees (who can count, read a tape measure, (in metric), write purchase orders, take phone calls from customers, be proactive in delivering consistent business results...). Just the normal elementary, starting position requirements.

Public schools can't seem to do the job, so outsource it to someone who can. (There are plenty of available options.)

Pretty broad brush you are painting with. Any underlying conditions/requirements preventing you from finding qualified workers, when others seem to be able to find them ?

Funding religious schools with taxpayer funds is a slippery slope, and borders on being unconstitutional.

"In 2014, the Supreme Court held in Town of Greece v. Galloway that “it is an elemental First Amendment principle that government may not coerce its citizens to support or participate in any religion or its exercise.” Some would argue that supporting a religious school with tax money would be coercion.

Why should an Atheist be taxed to support a religious entity ?

Well there is this pesky thing called the first amendment.

I haven't mentioned a word about the KKK...wasn't even thinking about it. But Americans are often not "fans" of the Muslim religion.

That's a good question...why not taxpayer funds for an atheist school? Or how about a Black Lives Matter School?
