While we’re on the subject of poor political judgment, the Oklahoman just ran my op-ed on schools closing on Election Day for the official, publicly identified purpose of increasing the Blob’s political clout:
Running the schools themselves with institutional policies designed — explicitly — to maximize school employees’ political power at everyone else’s expense is another matter. Now they’re using our tax dollars to create a political machine designed to extract ever-more tax dollars for themselves. The rest of us are allowed to notice this. If you want to create a big and vicious political backlash in an already polarized environment, this is one way to do it.
Let me know what you think!
