Cradle To Career Education

In President Obamas's education plan, I missed seeing one important piece, vouchers.
Instead he calls for a nationalized, standardized curriculum, obligatory for the entire
next generation. The Obama's sent their own daughters, not to a public or charter
school, but to Sidwell Friends, a private Quaker school with a track record of success.
Yet the President gives no indication that he will allow that choice to poor and middle
income Americans.
And that successful school the Obamas chose is one that promotes their own values.
The compulsory education he envisions will almost certainly include things many
parents oppose, such as one world government, radical environmentalism, sexual
license (with proper protection), homosexuality as an equal alternative to
heterosexuality, evolution taught without any of the contrary evidence and the removal
of any mention of God from the entire curriculum.
