As Democrats talk about racial justice -- while refusing to even debate consensus-based police reform legislation -- the party's presumptive presidential nominee appears poised to placate teachers unions by stripping funding from the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program.
This program -- started during the Bush administration, undermined and defunded during the Obama years, then reinstatedby President Trump -- offers financial assistance to indigent families of color in order to allow them to afford private school tuition for their children. It's exceptionally popular among the parents whose children benefit from it, but it will likely be on the chopping block in a Biden administration, in the name of "progress."
Tough luck, poor families of color. There are political interests that supersede yours. DeAngelis, a school choice advocate, refutes some of the bogus reasons cited by the "unity task force," which is designed to make leftists feel included and represented as Biden's platform and governing priorities take shape.
