Justice Dept. sues Louisiana over school vouchers


LINK

quote:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The U.S. Justice Department is suing the state of Louisiana to stop the state from distributing school vouchers in districts that remain under desegregation court orders.

Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal called the department's action Saturday "shameful" and said President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder "are trying to keep kids trapped in failing public schools."

I really hate this administration. Dictator Barack going after states he doesn't like.

Say what you want about Bush, but he never went after states for implementing policies he didn't agree with.

The civil rights era of our day. Blacks being denied education. Remember, Obama has no clue what the black community is. If he grew up in Compton or some rural southern areas, he would quickly change his tune on vouchers.

This could actually lead to some good depending on how the courts rule.

History will frown on the administration for this.

Republicans could make gains on this issue if they would focus.

PPL will get attacked and called racists for saying this but its 100% true. The poor uneducated, under employed minority crowd is the life blood of the democratic party. If the children of these ppl get educated and make it out of poverty they will see what the democrats are truly about. Next thing you know a generation from now democrats would be a thing of the past.

The same Obama that is criticized by the right for being an active community organizer in Chicago's South Side & a member, for over 20 years, in a Washing Heights(97% Black community) Church?

Obama grew up in in Hawaii , but got his education on the streets of Chicago.

Obama has lived a fairly informed & balanced life unlike the bigots with their stereotyped opinions of what they THINK Compton /Washington Heights is from listening to certain Hip Hop Records or "Hood" movies.

Romney's done. It's over.

Understandable. After all, the vouchers are moving black students from integrated public schools to all-black private schools. Very sneaky and clever. Good thing Holder is smart enough to see through it.

Democrats standing up for special interests instead of children.

Shocking. Teacher union ahead of country.




Democrats are on the wrong side if history on this. Being the party of educators does NOT make you the party of education. This is hurting the children stuck in these horrible public schools more than anything. They stand in the way of choice every step of the way.

Obama was a community organizer for one second before going to law school.

re: Justice Dept. sues Louisiana over school vouchers


I have a problem with vouchers due to shady, politically connected companies pushing fraudulent, money-grabbing virtual classes, but using deseg as an excuse is nonsense by holder.

I'll wait to see what the mighty crazy crawfish has to say about this.

re: Justice Dept. sues Louisiana over school vouchers


I have never understood why Republicans don't push school vouchers more. It is a policy that has overwhelming support amongst the public and is something that they can use to paint Democrats as out of touch.

Same thing with voter ID. No matter how much liberals decry voter ID as racist it is supported by ~80% of the public whenever it is polled.
