Meaningful school choice is endorsed clearly in the Church's social teachings. And, it enjoys strong public support, according to a new poll.
Particularly striking is the fact that large numbers of Democratic voters -- indeed, pretty much the same numbers as on the Republican side -- express support for school choice. And yet, it is a near article-of-faith among the Democrats' leadership and activists (in particular, the public-employee-union-members base) that choice-and-opportunity-enhancing measures must be opposed and resisted. A political-market failure, it appears.
