Here’s Reason’s Matt Welch on Obama’s education secretary and the trashing of Washington D.C.’s school-voucher program:
The sheer gratuitousness of this move is just appalling. Yes, let’s subject this one program to a kind of cost-benefit skepticism that nothing else in a half-trillion bill receives. Let’s throw teachers unions a symbolic bone that, by the way, screws over poor minority kids in a school system that was finally gaining some traction. How hideous.
