Obama Nixed Voucher Program Loved by Black Parents

Last week I articulated a nice post on school choice, and how Nancy Devos is good for the poor, especially black poor. She wants to create educational policies, like school choice, that would allow black parents to send their kids to the same schools the rich people go to.

Did you know that Washington D.C. had a school voucher program? Black parents loved it. They were able to send their kids to the same schools the rich people sent their kids to. They were able to send their kids to the same school Obama chose to send his kids to.

Do you know what Obama did the moment he was inaugurated in 2008? He got rid of this program. Black parents were livid. Why would Obama do this? Well, we know why he would do this: he wants poor kids to be trapped in poverty. That way they continue to vote for democrats, who they think will get them out of poverty, or at least support entitlement programs to help them (which ultimately keep them trapped in poverty).

He did it because he had to please the teacher's unions, who donated a lot of money to him. The teachers unions are opposed to school choice because they need students so their teachers can continue to make money.

There is another reason, though. They want to be able to indoctrinate kids. They want to control thought. They want to turn kids into good little liberals. That's the bottom line here. That's the only thing that makes sense about this.
