The Jersey Jazzman speaks out against NJ Governor Christie’s ridiculous school voucher scheme! Click through the link to read the entire article, and check out the chart! Here’s an excerpt:
Vouchers: Again, the people who push this stuff are either deluded or dishonest: private schools do no better than public schools when you account for student differences. And I hate to tell all the ministers pushing this, but the First Amendment is awfully clear about giving money to churches – not that a little thing like the Constitution ever stops our “originalist” judges anymore.
I’ve really got to wonder which corporations want their names attached to the fly-by-night operations that voucher cheerleaders see springing up if OSA passes. Why would a corporation take the risk of associating their good name with a school that could turn out to be a train wreck?
One more thing: look at this list above. Take a good, hard look.
Does anyone reading this really believe any of this nonsense is going to do a damn thing to improve student performance in New Jersey?
