Conservative Hideout has news that should not surprise anyone. The Justice Department is suing Louisiana to stop school vouchers
In something reminiscent of the 60′s, Democrats are barring minorities from escaping terrible public schools. Doug Ross has our first excerpt…
Pro-Choice: 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.
He didn’t say it on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech,” but President Obama, along with Attorney General Eric Holder, also has a dream — one of leaving every black child in the Pelican State behind, trapped in schools that cannot educate them.
Almost simultaneously with the president’s speech, Holder’s Department of Justice filed suit in federal court to stop Louisiana’s statewide voucher program.
Passed in 2012, the program guarantees a voucher tostudents from families with incomes below 250% of poverty and who attend schools graded “C” or below.
Liberals are all for choice when it comes to having children, but not when it comes to educating them. The irony of Obama’s speech is that he pretended to honor a man who fought to have black children attend schools they were barred from as his administration fought to keep them in schools they can’t escape from, a form of educational apartheid that’s both separate and unequal.
Why would they do this? Why would they seek to keep down kids whose parents are trying to get them in better schools? Oh, they will give many reasons, but the fact is this. there is only ONE REASON for this. Democrats are beholden to teachers unions, yes, but the bigger reason is they want for minority kids to be dumbed down, it keeps them voting Democrat! Matt has more, make sure to read this
Let’s also understand that the public school system, that systematically fails to educate everyone, but especially minorities, is little more than a vassal of the Democratic Party, and serviced by the teachers union. In spite of the overwhelming evidence, Both the Democrats and the unions steadfastly refuse any attempts to reform it, as that would mean removing their control of it. Now, why would they so vehemently resist changing it? I posted a story of a 13 year old girl that found the answer, and was punished for it…
If you needed more proof, kindly considers what happens when a young black student “wakes up” to history, and has the temerity to quote Frederick Douglass, in the proper context…
Mr. Vargas is fortunate enough to have in his charge one Jada Williams, a 13-year-old eighth grader who voluntarily took on some difficult extra work: reading Frederick Douglass’s Narrative of the Life and writing an essay on the subject. Frederick Douglass is dangerous reading, truly radical stuff. Miss Williams, like most of thestudents in her dysfunctional school, is black. Most of the people being paid to go through the motions of teaching them are white. Coming across the famous passage in which Douglass quotes the slavemaster Auld, Miss Williams was startled by the words: “If you teach that nigger (speaking of myself) how to read, there will be no keeping him. It will forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master.” The situation seemed to her familiar, and her essay was a blistering indictment of the failures of the largely white faculty of her school: “When I find myself sitting in a crowded classroom where no real instruction is taking place I can say history does repeat itself.”
Her teacher was so offended by the essay that she circulated copies of it to the rest of the faculty and to the principal. Miss Williams, an A student, suddenly began to receive Ds. According to accounts, her mother received harassing telephone calls from teachers who suggested that she was in some way disturbed rather than merely observant. She was forced eventually to withdraw from the school and enroll in an even worse one. (The Blaze has more.)
So, a student woke up, and realized that she was being enslaved by a failing system, was punished for noticing the truth? Well, let’s just say that it gets more interesting…
Teachers refused to show Miss Williams’s mother the schoolwork she had allegedly performed poorly on, and they refused to answer many of her questions about her daughter’s performance and alleged behavioral problems.
The teachers also failed to enter Miss Williams’s essay in the contest for which it was written — intentionally sabotaging her chances at an academic honor.
It is our contention that most of the regressive/Marxist/Democrat Party social programs are intended to no only create dependency, but to perpetuate it forever. The chains of this new slavery were forged by the Democrats, are expanded, and are strengthened by the Democrats. And, when of their victims notices who it is that is enslaving them, there is quick and sure retribution. Because, you see, ideas are dangerous things, especially ones about escaping the government plantation.
Racism anyone? I keep saying the Left will do anything to seize and keep perpetual power, this is just further proof. If you are Black and really want to see your biggest enemy, go find a Democratic politician.
