The Dunce

The Bush administration has been pushing for privatization of education in every way possible, asking Congress for more and more funds to pay for charter schools with public funds while attacking real public schools and encouraging parents to jump ship.

It is no joking matter. With public school budgets severely challenged by the Bush economy and its low tax revenues, the prospect of transferring payment for private and religious schools to an already strained funding situation conjures up dire straits.
