This is another example of how the government wants you to rely on them. And, if you try to get out from under the government’s thumb, they will do what it takes (including a lawsuit) to keep you trapped in their snare.
What’s really appalling is that Eric Holder wants these kids to stay in these crummy schools just because he thinks that “many of those vouchers impeded the desegregation process.” That’s right. If all these black kids leave the school, it will change the race ratio. So what!
The reason why we have great people of color in American history (George Washington Carver, Harriet Tubman, and Frederick Douglas just to name a few) is because they decided not to let the color of their skin get in the way. They didn’t think, “Oh, gee, I’m black so I can’t do . . .” America would be a much better place if we could get the Al Sharptons, the Eric Holders, and the Jesse Jacksons to think the same way.
The Justice Department is trying to stop a school vouchers program in Louisiana that attempts to help families send their children to independent schools instead of under-performing public schools.
The agency wants to stop the program, led by Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, in any school district that remains under a desegregation court order.
In papers filed in U.S. District Court in New Orleans, the agency said Louisiana distributed vouchers in 2012-13 to roughly 570 public school students in districts that are still under such orders and that “many of those vouchers impeded the desegregation process.”
The federal government argues that allowing students to attend independent schools under the voucher system could create a racial imbalance in public school systems protected by desegregation orders.
