My Kids Love Their Private School…

… glad I’m not poor.

That is the attitude of the National Education Association and their candidateMessiah, Barack Obama.  William McGurn of the Wall Street Journal asks some stick-in-the-eye questions:

School Choice Is Change You Can Believe In
June 17, 2008; Page A21

Barack and Michelle Obama send their children to an upscale private school. When asked about it during last year’s YouTube debate, Sen. Obama responded that it was “the best option” for his children.

Several hundred low-income parents in our nation’s capital have also sent their children to private and parochial schools, with the help of a federal program that provides Opportunity Scholarships. Like Mr. and Mrs. Obama, most of these parents are African-American. And like Mr. and Mrs. Obama, they too believe the schools they’ve chosen represent the “best option” for their children.

Now these parents have a question for Mr. Obama. Is Mr. Change-You-Can-Believe-In going to let his fellow Democrats take away the one change that is working for them?

Perhaps Barack Obama has a principled position on the government sponsorship of private education.  Perhaps he is steadfast against allowing government to dictate education standards for families.  Or could their be some other reason he would be against this voucher program?
