Another Fine video from my friends at Reason.tv
We can prop up failing industries but can't support a program which actually fucking works. This pisses me off so much. I would like to see some asshole defend this despicable move by the Obama Administration. If my President really wants ideas that work for education, vouchers work. As Twain says facts are stubborn things.
From the Wall Street Journal Today:
See if you can follow this political syllogism. President Obama and his Education Secretary have repeatedly promised to support "what works," regardless of ideology. The teachers unions adamantly oppose school vouchers, whether or not they work. Ergo, Messrs. Obama and Duncan decide to end a D.C. school voucher program that works and force poor kids back into schools where Messrs. Obama and Duncan would never send their own children. What a disgrace.
