School vouchers are this generation’s “separate but equal”–not just a strategy for raiding the public treasury, but also a strategy for resegregation. From John Romano:
And do not buy the Legislature’s cockamamie argument that it has introduced accountability to the voucher system. Students will not be taking the same Common Core-inspired test given in public schools, and there will be no state ramifications for students, teachers or school funding for low scores.
That’s not accountability, it’s a ruse.
Read the rest.
The kissing cousin of vouchers is “school choice.” Like “separate but equal,” it is pretty words disguising nefarious intent.
