This Really IS "For the Children"

Excellent piece in this morning's Democrat and Chronicle by Editorial Board member Petrena Hayes, on the role school vouchers can play to bring some actual education into the lives of kids.

Most stories in our local paper about improving the schools are little more than a torrent of the usual bilge from apologists for the schools establishment, without question the most determinedly reactionary force in New York politics. ("We want to help 'the children' -- as long as we don't have to change a thing.")

So Ms. Hayes's clear thinking is a welcome oasis in a bleak landscape.
