Who Really Cares About "the Children"?

K-12 education always exposes the elitist frauds.

Where was Chelsea Clinton while President Bill Clinton vetoed legislation allowing low-income children in Washington, D.C., to escape hellhole public schools with vouchers? Chelsea was safely tucked away in an elite private school.

Here was John McCain's take on Barack Obama's rejection of private school vouchers for low-income Americans:

"All of that went over well with the teachers union, but where does it leave families and their children who are stuck in failing schools? No entrenched bureaucracy or union should deny parents that choice and children that opportunity."

Where do Obama's children attend school? An elite private school in Chicago.

Makes me sick.

And this surprises you how? If we as taxpayers must be obligated to pay for others education then education has to face real and serious competition coupled with parents responsibility for choosing the best eduational opportunity for their kids given a set annual amount of dollars per child period. No BS about percentage of reduced/free lunch kids or non-English speakers, etc. As long as teacher's unions are allowed to exist, probability of significant change is about zero.
