Deborah Simmons is wrong in promoting the school voucher plan for the District (“School vouchers the right option,” Culture, Friday).

D.C. voters rejected a similar plan in the 1980s by 89 percent to 11 percent. The voucher plan would force all voters in the U.S. to help pay for sectarian private schools (including Islamic schools) in violation of every citizen’s fundamental right to religious freedom, the right not to be compelled by government to contribute to the support of any religious institution. Our religious freedom should not be endangered by politicians.
