Florida courts and teachers work hard to shaft students

Florida case underscores wrongheaded opposition to school vouchers
What Florida’s teachers unions consider a menace, and what Florida’s Supreme Court considers an affront to the state’s constitution, weighs 105 pounds, smiles shyly, speaks softly and wants to be a nurse. Octavia Lopez, 17, an 11 th-grader at Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School in the heart of Miami, was enabled to come to the school because of the smallest of three schoolchoice programs enacted under Gov. Jeb Bush.

There aren't words for how disgusting this is. The teachers unions are probably the single greatest force promoting poverty and ignorance in the world. They make Pol Pot look downright pro-intellectual.

Pol Pot was a murdering communist leader and since my wife is a teacher I would beg to differ. She loves her kids and would vote for funding of schools that work for kids. We just need the teachers who think this way to do something about the radical leadership of their unions. Vouchers are a good thing and judges who stand in the way are going o be swept aside by organized voters who will work for things that fix our broken education system.
