This is very unfortunate. The impulse of NCLB is commendable, even if the implementation has been a disaster. Why punish children for the ideological commitments of politicians? It stands to reason: if competition is a valuable force in social life, why not use credits to allow those who are less fortunate to have a competitive vote on public schools?

Come on, Jason. The idea that a tiny pilot program, in a locality with completely dysfunctional (though well funded) public schools, for low-income kids, is an effort to "kill public education" is just silly. Besides, a primary reason why vouchers have not caught on outside of urban centers is precisely because comfortable Republican suburbanites like their public schools just fine.
