The Truth, Shall Set You Free.

Pro-Choice is not just a before birth concept! School Choice!

So why do the Democrats in our government oppose supporting school vouchers? This article from 2009, 9 years ago, makes it all pretty clear! "The political pressure will be coming exclusively from the teacher's unions who oppose the vouchers, just as they oppose No Child Left Behind and charter schools and every other effort at reforming public schools that continue to fail the nation's most vulnerable young people, low-income blacks and Hispanics." TEACHERS UNIONS? Why in the world would teachers oppose such things? I understand that if vouchers were made available, and this is the goal of Betsy DeVos (DOE), lots of kids would pull out of the public school system...This would cause, ummm, hmmm, this would cause the public schools to have a lower student population and less funding and they would actually have to COMPETE with schools that are putting out a better product!

Now the general public doesn't think this is a bad idea, why would the teachers union which is, by the way, one of the largest union in our country! Maybe this-- "The National Education Association and other teachers' unions have put millions into Democrats' congressional campaigns because they oppose Republican efforts to challenge unions on their resistance to school reform and specifically their refusal to support ideas such as performance-based pay for teachers who raise students' test scores," "PERFORMANCE-BASED PAY!" This is a concept that is embraced in every aspect of our society. In any job you are evaluated by your performance...tenure is not an integral aspect of our capitalist society. It certainly plays a part in some businesses, but if you're not on your game, you get demoted or fired! Why do the teachers, who are a part of the union think they should not be held to the same standards?

"Education politics are big business in America, often pitting institutionalized interests like the NEA against parents and kids. And, equally unfortunate there are far too many people who are in a position to right the wrongs who are taking advantage of their ability to opt out of the discussion, at least as far as their own children are concerned."

So, once again, school vouchers are back on the table and Betsy Devos is pushing hard on this issue. "DeVos, a long-time school choice advocate from Michigan, was the architect of Detroit’s school charter system and formerly led the Alliance for School Choice advocacy group. She headed the American Federation for Children — which backs school choice for poor and underprivileged families" The irony is that people (Democrats) that voted against her nomination to the DOE have THEIR kids in private schools! Obama who nixed the DC vouchers has HIS KIDS in private schools! I find it interesting and almost laughable that the woman who is a gazillionaire, and is fighting to allow poor, underprivileged kids to go to school with her grandchildren, is being fought tooth and nail by the Establishment and the Teachers Union!  So, the next time you, especially you teachers, bash this woman, just remember, if you are swimming with the alligators and the carp, you won't survive long outside your swamp!
