Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 354 -- Give School Choice A Chance.
School Choice Increases Racial Integration-
African-Americans nearly unanimously oppose the the Party of Lincoln, the GOP. Simultaneously, by and large, African-Americans support school choice, an issue teacher-union-beholden Democrats deeply oppose. It's one of the few issues Republicans can use to chip away at the Democratic monopoly on the black community.
One reservation many black voters have about school choice vouchers is that they won't do anything to address diversity in schools. Indeed, some people worry that vouchers would amount to subsidized segregation. Well, no longer.
Some comparisons of vouchers versus no vouchers, from the Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation (.pdf):
Public school classrooms were more likely than private school classrooms to be racially homogeneous (54 v. 41 percent); public school students were less likely than private school students to be in classrooms whose racial balance was close to that of the national student population (18 v. 37 percent).
And in studies in Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Washington, DC confirm these findings.
Meanwhile, school choice vouchers are a bargain for taxpayers:
It's time to break up the union cartel on American education. It's time for school choice.

Black Elk...More and more teachers I know are not teaching anymore too. I have been told the kids are very different than they used to be and the lack of discipline is a major factor for the teaching experience. I have a friend who subs as a nurse in the junior high and she claims quite a many children are on ADD drugs. She lines them up and distributes the drugs to them. I have been told the kids are savy with tricks that accuse teachers of inappropriate behavior that have made teaching impossible. It seems to me many kids today have little if any respect for their elders or authority???
