Barber Beclowns Himself On Vouchers

Reverend Barber has equated the ability of parents to have school choice with segregation. No, not kidding.

“On Tuesday, the Rev. William Barber, the NAACP president, said vouchers are an attempt at re-segregation and a return to the 1950s.” –WNCN 

Barber beclowns himself as he trips over his giant bag of race cards to condemn vouchers and school choice for those who need it the most. Does the Reverend know that these vouchers are meant for low income students? Student’s like Cynthia Perry’s child?

“I just believe that children, especially my child, should have the right to the education that I didn’t have and to a better education to make her a better young adult. I am all for this program, I believe it will work for my child,” offered parent Cynthia Perry. – ABC11

If he does, the rhetoric and narrative of beating on the Republicans in NC is more important to him than the kids. He should be ashamed.

While we’re on the topic of school choice, you could do worse than to check out Instapundit’s new book,  The New School: How the Information Age Will Save American Education from Itself.

    Of course, it could be that people will just flee school districts dominated by loudmouthed civil rights bigots. I mean, that IS a possibility.

    I lived in an area with a limited “schools of choice”. None of what Bill et al projects as future issues was the case there. And yes, we did have black people there, and lily white suburbs around the only integrated (urban) district.

    We also had voter ID too. And get this — only one day to vote! One! And you had to have a reason to get an absentee ballot! Oh, and black participation increased after those rules were put into place. And yeah, nasty race history there too.
