Waiting for Superman...

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to watch “Waiting for Superman,” a heart-breaking documentary about America’s failing public school system.  Sitting with my wife (who is a teacher herself) I could not contain my emotion.  Sadness, anger and utter disgust are a few that come to mind.  The movie covers failing schools throughout the country, and profiles the brave children and few educators that are doing everything they can to improve the system. The prevailing theme of the film: the status quo will do anything to hold on to their power.  Teachers u

Wisconsin Battle Transcends Unions

The protests in Wisconsin remind us of issues that transcend unions, pensions and budgets.  It is the often neglected principles of the rule of law and fairness.  As former AFL-CIO president George Meany noted, “It is impossible to bargain collectively with government.”

School Choice: Senate Bill 1

School choice is a movement that many can get behind. After all, where’s the downside? Your tax dollars follow your student, schools are rewarded (or punished) based on their performance, and the entire system is held accountable for its performance. Senate Bill 1, an upcoming bipartisan bill in Pennsylvania, is a step in the right direction for the great state. Nonetheless, it faces opposition, not only from the teacher’s unions and the politicians in their pocket, but also from supporters of school choice, on the grounds that the bill does not go far enough.

The Opposition to School Choice

It is difficult to see where the objection to school choice lies. After all, isn’t it common sense that your taxes should pay for your child’s education, regardless of which school they attend? Why should failing schools be supported by your money? Consistently poor performance at a regular job results in termination. Why should the education system be any different?
