The Cato Institute’s Neal McCluskey has had enough of politicians telling parents to read to their children. No, he’s not against reading.
“Consider the gall: Public-schooling defenders insist that parents pay for public schools, largely on the grounds that parents can’t handle education themselves. Then they spin right around to blame parents when the schooling is a dud!”
In other words, parents are welcome to “participate” in their children’s education–as long as they support the administration and teachers union and don’t ask any questions–especially “Can we take our money elsewhere?”
