An Inconvenient Voucher Truth…

In an opinion-editorial published by the National Review on November 6, 2007, Lyall Swim of Sutherland Institute says it is ironic that “the very people who position themselves as the saviors or advocates of low-income minority children are the ones opposing legislation that has been proven to lift these same children out of the abyss of educational failure.”

In Utah, more than 40 percent of Hispanics and African-American students are not graduating with diplomas.  “This is a travesty,” Swim adds. “Adding insult to injury, the ‘minority advocates’ in Utah seem to be doing everything in their power to keep minorities from having real educational choice and thereby from reaching their potential.”
