we only care about the children!"
Documents released in December through litigation by school-choice
advocates showed that lawyers with the American Civil Liberties Union
and Disability Rights Wisconsin had prodded federal prosecutors to go
after the program, which enables low- and moderate-income Milwaukee
parents to use taxpayer-funded vouchers to send their children to
private schools. Nearly 30,000 students participate in the program.
According to the documents, the liberal groups opposing vouchers coordinated media strategy with the feds and submitted questions that Justice turned around and posed nearly verbatim to Wisconsin education officials. In addition to suggesting that the program was violating the
Americans with Disabilities Act by denying access to disabled kids, the
groups promised to drum up additional complaints. Their efforts appear
to be why Justice kept the inquiry open for four years even though
federal and state officials asserted from the start that, even if the
unproven charges were true, they were not legally empowered to remedy
them in private schools.
"But we CAN screw people around and use our power this way. For The Children."
Oh, this is going to work out well.
