Florida vouchers battle

George Will, one of my favorite columnists, takes on Florida's renewed battle over school vouchers in his latest column on MSNBC.com. The tagline says it all:

"Teachers unions fighting school choice for the children of poor families in Florida use 19th-century bigotry and 21st-century obscurantism."

Teachers unions are fighting vouchers programs because they threaten their power - 1) over the young minds that were once attending public schools but are turning away from those institutions in droves, and 2) over school teachers who wouldn't be members of unions if they didn't have to remain so for purposes of staying in a tolerable work environment. I hope they lose on both fronts.
