Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Voucher critics = chickenhawks?



Are Democrats who oppose vouchers but send their own kids to private schools as bad as Republicans who support wars but don’t send their own kids to fight? That argument is raised about Barack Obama (who sends his kids to private school) in this Rocky Mountain News op-ed.

For a survey of where Florida lawmakers send their kids to school, see this 2005 St. Petersburg Times story here. (It found Democrats with school-age children are more likely than Republicans to send their kids to private schools.)
