“ February 2008, while gearing up for his run at the presidency, Barack Obama told The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, “I will not allow my predispositions [to oppose vouchers] to stand in the way of making sure that our kids can learn. We’re losing several generations of kids, and something has to be done…….”

His union masters

Democrats serve at the pleasure of unions ……… powerful unions are the Teachers Unions across the country. In separate questionnaires submitted to both the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association, Obama had affirmed his opposition to vouchers which are government scholarships provided to poor families so their children can go to private schools thereby escaping the dysfunctional public school systems.

Obama’s hollow praise for vouchers should have been noticed by those who support vouchers, but deluded themselves into thinking Obama was actually open to allowing their use. He never was.

…November 2008, once he was safely elected, Obama selected Sidwell Friends School a private Washington DC institution known as a place where pious liberals like Bill Clinton and Joe Biden send their children or grandchildren. There was to be no public schooling for Obama’s girls.

“February 26, 2009 …… admitted…….. campaigning with education as a leading issue in his administration, …… had his fingers crossed. He had made his choice between taking care of his Teachers Union supporters and his poor voters. Clearly, the unions won.”

Elections make a difference

Obama’s recent State of the Union speech was laced with talk about education. Republican ….. John Boehner and Independent Senator Joe Lieberman have taken him at his word.

….. announced…… new ……. voucher system to the District of Columbia’s poor families, the Opportunity and Results (SOAR) Act.

Republican John Boehner is giving these poor families back the hope for change..

This will be a big boost to the DC schools, but of course Republicans will get no credit for it.
