Republicans Propose National School Voucher Program - New York Times Republicans Propose National School Voucher Program - New York Times

Talk about a wedge issue. Republicans Propose National School Voucher Program - New York Times discusses a Republican proposal for a pilot program of vouchers for low income families having kids in failing schools.

You can read that as being aimed straight at the heart of the Democratic Party, because the most obvious beneficiaries of such a program are African-Americans, some of the strongest supporters of vouchers and who are some of the most harmed by the current public school system, and the obvious groups that will be harmed by it most are the teachers' unions, which supply a large percentage of that party's foot soldiers in every election.
