Re: McGuinty must make good on ‘one law for all’, Igor Ellyn, November 1.

Mr. Ellyn makes a sound case for equal fiscal treatment for all schooling choices. However, the diversity of curricula and cultures at independent schools would come under attack, if those schools were to become tax-funded. True choice and equity in schooling can be achieved only in a system in which parents pay tuition directly to the public or private school that their child attends, instead of funding education with taxes.
