Obama to end school choice program while ‘we need to make sure ‘all children’ get a chance at a great education’

The hypocrisy reaches a new high this week. While few would disagree that education is the ticket to getting out of poverty and Baltimore for that matter, Obama tries again to end the school choice program in D.C. This from the so-called Black President. Here we go:

After having presented a budget to Congress that would phase out a school-choice program that allows a limited number of children to escape Washington, D.C.’s public schools, President Barack Obama delivered a weekly address today that said all Americans have a responsibility to make sure all children—not just their own—get a great education.

(Obama’s two daughters go to Sidwell Friends, one of the most expensive private schools in Washington, D.C.)

“All of us have a responsibility to not only make sure our own children have pathways to success but that all children do,” Obama said, while sitting in a public library in the Anacostia neighborhood of D.C. “And a great education is the ticket to a better life like never before.

“The Obama administration has tried for years to sunset the program, and the president’s fiscal 2013 budget request zeroed out funding for the program, though the proposal was never carried out,” Education Week reported last month.

“The fiscal 2016 budget request includes $43.2 million, down from $45 million last year, and $3.2 million of that must be used to carry out an evaluation of the program,” reported Education Week. “In addition, the proposal specifically states that the money will be made available until it’s all used up, an attempt to sunset the program once again and block new enrollees.”

    The man is a natural when it comes to saying one thing and doing another–I think this is the very definition of hypocrisy! He has no credibility on this issue until he puts his daughters in public school, but of course the left will ignore this little fact…

      They all feed off the trough and rant and rave at the rest of us for not doing our share.

    As always with leftwing prog politicians, turn down the volume and watch what they do. Words are just a distraction to mask their hypocritical and criminal behavior.

      No one wants to face the fact that for the agenda to be successful, blacks need to be sacrificed.

        The positive element of Obama and the left’s agenda to keep poor black children poor black and uneducated is that the black voting bloc in DC and elsewhere will continue to support and vote for those who will keep them in chains in perpetuity. Now that’s loyalty!
