For Those Keeping Score

For those who are keeping score, 3 of the top 5 circulating newspapers in the United States have recently written editorials supporting the D.C. voucher program:  USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post

The New York Times along with their teacher union readership have remained quiet on the issue, hoping the dirty deed can be done as silently as possible. 

And the Chicago Tribune, which is a top 10 circulating newspaper as well as the hometown paper for voucher-killers Obama, Duncan, and Durbin, also endorsed DC vouchers.

Somebody needs to reach Kevin Carey in his hermetically-sealed DC bubble to let him know that at least some people who “are serious about education policy” seem to care about vouchers — that is, unless we want to believe that the editorial boards of the country’s largest newspapers with total circulation in excess of 5 million readers shouldn’t be considered as serious as policy analysts at tiny DC think tanks.

    “How does it look, Bones? Will the damage be permanent?”

    “It’s worse than that – he’s dead, Jim.”

    “. . . If only we could have . . . found another way!”

    “You issued a series of clear warnings and set phasers to snark before firing, Jim, but his attacks continued. Resetting phasers to kill was the only logical course of action under those circumstances.”

    “I suppose you’re right. If only all species could learn to transcend the need for senseless violence, as humanity has. Hopefully someday this godforsaken planet known as DC will be enlightened enough to join the Federation – but clearly not yet.”

    “I believe our work here is done, Jim.”

    “Yes, indeed. Mr. Scott, three to beam up.”
