Skip to comments.Obama, Holder Stand In Louisiana Schoolhouse Door [poor kids trapped in bad schools]
Posted on 09/02/2013 7:14:55 PM PDT by grundle
The Justice Department has asked a federal court to stop 34 school districts in Louisiana from handing out private-school vouchers so kids can escape failing public schools, just like the president's daughters.
Passed in 2012, the program guarantees a voucher to students from families with incomes below 250% of poverty and who attend schools graded "C" or below.
DOJ's argument is that many of the schools affected remain under desegregation orders imposed 50 years ago and that, essentially, letting poor blacks leave these schools for better ones upsets the politically correct racial balance DOJ wants to achieve.

With obama and the democrats:
A choice between the teacher’s union and the children.
The children lose.
Powerful headline there...
Bill Cunningham spent some time on this issue. This school voucher program was proving very successful, people liked it, and gave them real choices. And now the holder crew is quashing it because it prevents the circle jerk of federal money going back into failing public schools.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
letting poor blacks leave these schools for better ones upsets the politically correct racial balance
Translation: political correctness > actually helping students
well, I realize that local schools are none of the fed govt’s business,
if O is concerned about some local school in Louisiana, fine and dandy...
he can divert the costs of blowing up Syria ... to that parish in La.......for their allegedly-crappy schools.
As things go, that will be a far better outcome.
(or he can use the damn*d bombs to get rid of the dangerous Irani nuclear war factories .... if he stalls much longer about doing that, all these conversations may not matter anymore, anyway)
We know well that these two would far rather be in a bathhouse than in a school.
Except if they could combine the two, of course.
Democrat President Hussein Obama and Eric the Ho locks them.
DOJ's argument is that many of the schools affected remain under desegregation orders imposed 50 years ago and that, essentially, letting poor blacks leave these schools for better ones upsets the politically correct racial balance DOJ wants to achieve. Fifty years and they still don't have it right?
That ought to be a glaringly obvious "clue" that it is never going to do what everyone claimed.
Never mind the total irony of a black president doing this...
Gotta keep the kids stupid so they can become socialist democrats to fuel big government....or am I missing something.
Send Your Kid to Private School? You Suck
If You Send Your Kid to Private School, You Are a Bad Person
If You Send Your Kid to Private School, You Are a Bad Person (LEFTIST BRAINWASHING ALERT)
Libs see things differently. My bet is that they want to prevent poor whites and Hispanics from escaping bad black dominated schools; it wouldn’t be “fair”!
