This is Obama's true self: American schoolchildren forced at the point of a gun to stay in failing government schools rather than escape their indoctrination.
Investor's Business Daily:
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.
Right. That's step one. Do not mistake it to be the last step.
The Department of Education has SWAT teams, armed with, at the very least, 12-gauge shotguns. If they are like other Federal departments, they have full-auto M4's and 10mm H&K submachine guns. They will bust into school board members' homes if they have to. The Federal Government now owns public schools. The illusion of local control is just that: an illusion.
Please get your kids out of these government schools. There are so many ways to do it, and in some states like Louisiana, monies are available to escape. For now.
