    I'm curious what are your thoughts on affirmative action in regards to schools. Specifically vouchers, busing, and college admission. Good? Bad? Hinderence or helpful?

    Busing was mostly a big waste of money, but unfortunately necessary in certain areas. Vouchers are an immediate way out for some who are stuck in failing schools and therefore to the immediate benefit, the long term has not had a chance to occur yet to tell what the long term benefit or problem will be. College Admission, I have no problem with keeping enrollment as it would be without affirmative action and funding extra spots with specific short term funding for the next ten to twenty years for minorities. But decreasing opportunities based on racial "set-a-sides" is as wrong, as it was to descriminate all those years before.
