Helping poor blacks

Interviewed by CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux, Senator Obama said the following:

You know, I have said in the past, and I’ll repeat again, that the best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city….

Well, Senator Obama, you can do that within a couple of years, easy.  Just support vouchers so that inner city parents can send their kids to private schools, just like you send your kids to private schools.  Of course, that would piss off the “Teachers” Unions, which care far more about money and jobs for their members, than about making sure their members actually do their jobs and educate children.

So, Senator Obama, what’s more important?  Good schools for inner city children, or sucking up to the NEA?

    I agree wholeheartedly. Research shows that many parents want school choice, but wantin ain’t getin.

    The desperate need is for these parents to be politically organized so that they can protect and reward legislators who support school choice and punish legislators who don’t support school choice.

    Nothing is going to change until this happens. No amount of research supporting school choice will cause change. No amount of frustration over the status quo will cause change.

    Grassroots organization, especially in Democratic districts, is the only thing that will cause change. The education bureaucracy is already politically organized. Nothing, nada, zilch will change until parents turn their concerns into political organization.

    I am trying to politically organize school choice parents in Texas. I would love help from any true believers in Texas. I hope someone is leading the grassroots charge in OK.

    Did I mention that….Nothing will change until parents get politically organized around school choice exclusively. This is not about Rep’s or Dem’s, this is about school choice from start to finish!
