Education Reforms: Simply a Fraud

Here's a smart piece from The Newtown Bee, a little newspaper in my home state.

"The last cynical step, prudently assuming that all else has failed, will be to order the towns to offer school vouchers. Since these will be of modest value, many will end up at religious schools, which was the main point of the whole enterprise in the first place. That's what a hardy band of the president's religious supporters crave, and will most likely get, if he stays in office. No money for Head Start, preschools, nutrition, tutoring, computers, books, school nurses, or anything else. Just vouchers."

There must be 100 reasons to vote the Chimp out of office this year. This is just one of them.
