LOUisiana democrat GOVERNOR protects a powerful union on the backs of poor students! welcome to the machine . . .
Back to Bad Schools in the Bayou
. . . where progressives place the interests of the powerful and connected above the interests of the poor and young.
"If Democrats are so committed to equality and fairness, why do the party’s politicians protect teachers unions over minority students looking for a good education? The latest example is on display in Louisiana, where new Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards is trying to curb school choice.
Mr. Edwards this week proposed restrictions on the Louisiana Scholarship Program, which allows low-income students in schools rated by the state as C, D or F to apply for a scholarship to attend a parochial or private school. The initiative started thanks to former Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal and serves more than 7,100 students, almost 90% of whom are minorities."
Old white carbuncle moves to protect a powerful union on the backs of poor students. Where are the black race baiters? Oh, right, the old white carbuncle is a progressive who is sharing power with unions, so the race baiters stay away. They become "hear no evil" when one of their own is destroying colored's opportunity. This is so common, and so ugly it takes the breath away.
The gov protects his own. Is this really what Louisianian's want from their governor?
