The founder of a Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapter in St. Paul, Minnesota, Richard Turner, quit the organization telling Fox News on Wednesday that BLM is racist against black children because they openly oppose school choice.
I have been told that for many in the black community school choice is akin to a civil rights issue. Years ago the Democrats fought to keep black children out of public schools and now the Democrats fight to keep black kids in failing public schools. School choice would not only allow black parents to get their children into better schools but the natural selection by parents would force failing public schools to up their game. It would be a win-win for all. It’s their tax dollars that pay for education. Parents have the right to demand that their children’s schools give their kids the best education possible, and if they can’t come through, then parents have the right to send their kids to the school of their choice.
Democrats are against school choice because their overlords, the teachers’ unions, are against them. The unions don’t want to have their members graded on their performance and punished for underperforming. Unions give large amounts of money from the dues their members pay, which is supposed to go toward contract arbitration, to Democrat politicians each election year to make sure that never happens.
