Kentucky GOP would gut public school choice

The party of "local control" and "school choice" is about neither!

Louisville has one of the strongest school desegregation plans in the nation. As part of this program, parents of elementary school students can actually choose from several public schools. Wow! Choice!

But a Republican bill in the Kentucky legislature would gut this program by forcing children to attend a specific school. Not only does it erase real choice, but it would also pulverize local control.

The bill has already passed the fascist-dominated Kentucky House. Every Democrat opposed it, but almost every Republican supported it.

That's "choice" and "local control", GOP-style.
