    What would happen if we started using public funds for private, religious-based schools?

    Yes, of course, but what if that were the case? Why don't we (the U.S.) do that now?

    We have those, and we call them public schools. They are not religious because that would violate the separation of church and state. We have neither the money or the need to fund private schools. Private schools are, for the most part, better funded than public schools. Any federal or state money that would go to a private school would be better spent in a public school that needs it desperately. Public schools need the money. Additionally, anyone who doesn't feel like their private school is funded well enough has the option to go to a public school.

    Wouldn't religious education be part of the curriculum at a religious school? Generally you would want that since you're paying for it.
    What if the quality of the education at the religious school was the most important factor for the parents (regardless of it's religious nature)?

    That was my parents' thought when they sent me to Catholic school.

    I get that. I am simply asking questions to encourage discussion.
    Why do we even separate the church and state?

    Historically speaking, politics and religion have never worked quite well together.

    Yea we have a few exceptional religious schools in my hometown, and I know more than a few who went to them.

    More often than not the decision hinged on the quality of the education.

    My dad isn't Catholic, my mom is but we were not a strongly observant family. This was Detroit in the 1970's. Public school was absolutely not an option.
