Writing about an expensive new school complex constructed by the broke Los Angeles school district, the Wall Street Journal‘s Alyssia Finley offers a nutshell description of Obama’s liberalism.
The K-12 complex isn’t merely an overwrought paean to the nation’s most celebrated liberal political family. It’s a jarring reminder that money doesn’t guarantee success—though it certainly beautifies failure.
Beautifies failure. Certainly sounds like all the fancy rhetoric, “hope,” “change” and “stimulus” to cover up for a major expansion of the federal government and an economic policy which has prevented the economy from expanding at the rate it normally does immediately following a recession.
UPDATE: And is this contrast with charter schools related to real Republican reforms?
Mr. [Thomas] Rubin [“a consultant for the district’s bond oversight committee”] says it’s unfair to compare charters with traditional public schools because charters aren’t saddled with onerous government regulations regarding labor and environmental standards. What he doesn’t say is that charter schools don’t have taxpayers as a backstop.
