Illinois House kills school voucher bill. Fervent lobbying by unions sinks idea to give students $3,700 to switch from failing, inner-city government schools to private or parochial schools.
"Teachers unions argued the legislature should be voting for an income tax increase that would help all students, not just a few, and that vouchers could cost public school teaching jobs."There you have it. It's all about preserving union jobs, not providing the best educational choices for the children.
The unions seem to have this entitlement mentality that it's their money. But it's not their money. It's your tax dollars at work. And poor, mostly Black, children suffer.
Where's the outrage?
