As opposed to the blatant bigotry of trying to destroy public education for the poor and disadvantaged for the gain and benefit of the privileged.
You haven't ever answered the question of access to the best schools. Or their lack of accountability for whom they admit. Or how their students perform. Or any of the other real issues that expose the hypocrisy of the voucher movement.
And opposing you and your unbelievable narrow views is NOT support of "low expectations," or bigotry, or any of the other lies you try to tar reformers and progressives with.
Your snake-in-the-grass tactics are no less transparent now than they have been for better than a decade. What's comforting, in a way, is that you've not improved your lies much.
I leave you with the words of Joseph Welch to another demogogue.
