For the umpteenth time, the Texas state senate passed a voucher bill for students with disabilities. It is heading now for the House. Up until now, the House (also Republican controlled) has turned down the senate’s voucher bill. The House of Representatives believes in local control. The state senate believes in Betsy DeVos and ALEC.
The senate bill is the camel’s nose under the tent. First, vouchers for students with disabilities (although the students abandon their federally-protected rights when they leave the public schools), then will come a parade of other small groups, then everyone.
It is so transparent.
