The civil rights issue of our day! I have always been amazed at the level of disgust the radical public education system has had against parents making decisions for the children’s education. (Yet, this same group usually loves screaming “choice” when it comes to aborting a child, but no choice once they are born!)
The good news is more freedom may be coming to parents very soon:
Gov. Bob McDonnell has said he wants to see changes to make it easier to open charter schools, even mentioning his support in his response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address Wednesday.
He also appointed charter school proponent Gerard Robinson, who had served as president of the Black Alliance for Educational Options, as state education secretary. That organization aims to provide low-income and working-class black families with access to high-quality education through such programs as charter schools, school vouchers, virtual schools and more.
Choice in education? Maybe, just maybe, McDonnell and his team will give real “hope and change” to “low-income and working-class black families” in regards to their children’s education.
Change we can believe in!
