Jason Fischer’s moral outrage

From the Times Union: Jason Fischer is a school board member who
has long favored more school choice said he would like the district to talk
about transportation funding for school choice in the future, especially for
low income parents who can’t afford it.
It
is really immoral to force a kid to go to a school where they are not doing
well he said, we have an obligation to provide transportation to these low
income kids.
First does anybody really think he cares
about the fate of our poor and mostly minority children? These are the same
children he sentenced to having Teach for America hobbyists as teachers. Hey Mr.
Fischer if you really care about them how about insisting they have real
teachers instead.
Listen to his words too; he wants kids
to be able to go to different schools if they aren’t doing well at the schools
they are at. He didn’t say be able to leave falling schools. Now just because a
kid isn’t doing well he thinks they should be able to leave. Maybe this is
because his brothers left their neighborhood school to attend a notoriously poor
performing charter school. There are numerous reasons why kids might not be doing well
and few justify paying for a transfer.    
Do you know what I find to be immoral, a
school board member who dislikes public schools and who is actively working to dismantle
them. As for obligations, he is failing his.
