Yes. Vouchers are when public school funding is taken from public schools and given to private schools. The parents get a "voucher" for the cost of that private education. These private schools do not have the same rules, regulations, and educational requirements that public schools have. It's been a nice way for conservatives to fund church schools using public money.

Our Title 1 has not been decreased at all. Our class sizes are balooning with cuts at the 4th and fifth grades the size of the classes are 28. Our high stakes year in testing is grade 4. Not easy to prepare them for the long essay test.

Our after school activities have disappeared since 2001.

What are the differences in educational requirements? Are public school districts burdening themselves with additional requirements or does the state create a two-tiered system?

It seems that making substantive requirements identical would be the route to take if public funding is to be involved.

Private schools ARE NOT held to the same testing standards as the public schools.

I am not quite certain what you mean by burdening.

I was wondering if there are non-educational reporting requirements, restrictions, or other mandated tasks that are not universally required by state law, but are adopted by a public school district.

I would think that state law would create core minimum standards that covers the majority of the school day for any school - public or private.

I can tell you that the paperwork involved in No Child Left behind, along with the mandated testing has put added burden on our schools. It has led to the creation of more management in my school system.

Private Schools and Charter Schools are NOT bound by the same requirements as public schools.

Private schools do not have to provide Special Education, they can toss out students who don't cut the academic mustard, they can (and frequently must) hire uncredentialed teachers, they don't need to provide the same "accountability" we do, they don't have to teach the same state standards we do. Local districts don't "burden" themselves with anything. The state and feds do enough of that, thanks. So, yeah, our state has created a two-tiered system.
