It’s no secret that the teachers’ unions cannot abide any public funding going to private schools and will do anything to stanch the tide. Union president Randi Weingarten, whose foot all too often winds up in her mouth, has absurdly asserted, “Make no mistake: This use of privatization, coupled with disinvestment, are only slightly more polite cousins of segregation.”

More and more states are adopting school choice measures.

It’s no secret that the government’s monopoly on education is in trouble. Across the country, public schools are emptying while parental choice is flourishing. Florida, perhaps the national leader in this movement, has four different private school choice programs: one education savings account (ESA), one voucher program, and two tax-credit scholarships.
