Bad choice: School choice gets a bad grade
Let's properly frame what Secretary of Education DeVos calls school choice, which means taking public funds to pay for private schools, all in the name of a better education. See this article detailing the poor performance results of private schools: They are dismal compared to public education. So don't let regressvies get away with framing it as if this provides freedom of choice to parents for their children. It provides profits for the 1% and poor performance results for children. They are lying and manipulating you for their benefit, while not giving a shit about your kids or your choices. Let's call it what it is: Bad choice.
