Greg Neft, KSL Newsradio A private school principal says even with vouchers, parents may have a tough time getting their children into a private school.

The principal of the Reid School in Holladay says she likes the idea. "I think the competition would turn for the better for the public schools," Ethna Reid said.

But she says vouchers aren't for everyone. "I don't think that many of the families in the few private schools that I'm acquainted with would have a low enough income to qualify," Reid said.

And she says there's the matter of getting in. "Some might be excluded if they don't meet the qualifications of the school that's entering them, but also, there might not be the space," she said.

Reid says her school doesn't pretest, but right now she doesn't have the space either.
