You Must Remember This

Next time vouchers come up, and you say, "Republicans favor vouchers not to help children learn, but to harm public schools," you will be accused of shrillness and who knows what else. Then you must link to this remembrance by Reed Hundt:
At any rate, since Mr. Bennett had been Secretary of Education I asked him to support the bill in the crucial stage when we needed Republican allies. He told me he would not help, because he did not want public schools to obtain new funding, new capability, new tools for success. He wanted them, he said, to fail so that they could be replaced with vouchers,charter schools, religious schools, and other forms of private education.
They really, truly hate America. Never forget that.
