A powerful piece, by the Editorial Board of the Washington Post, quite appropriately calling out the DOJ for its latest and lame attack on school choice in Louisiana. School choice is, of course, a pressing social-justice issue and it's deeply regrettable that, so soon after the commemoration of Dr. King's March on Washington, the administration is trying to hamstring this program. As the Post puts it:
NINE OF 10 Louisiana children who receive vouchers to attend private schools are black. All are poor and, if not for the state assistance, would be consigned to low-performing or failing schools with little chance of learning the skills they will need to succeed as adults. So it’s bewildering, if not downright perverse, for the Obama administration to use the banner of civil rights to bring a misguided suit that would block these disadvantaged students from getting the better educational opportunities they are due.
What was it that Slate was saying, again, about "bad people"?
