Mitt Romney unveiled a plan yesterday that will do more to provide upward social mobility for the poor and disabled than any proposal on the table today. “As President,” he said, “I will give the parents of every low-income and special needs student the chance to choose where their child goes to school. For the first time in history, federal education funds will be linked to a student, so that parents can send their child to any public or charter school, or to a private school, where permitted.”
Ah! So Romney’s signed on to vouchers! And of course lard ass Donohue and even more lard ass cardinal dumb shit Dolan are cheering him on!
The only problem is that the vouchers can – and will! – be used to send kids to religious schools. Federal money directly subsidizing religious schools. And indoctrination, and political education.
