|Attorney General Eric Holder|
Thanks Tim for the post. And the Eye adds: Education is a local issue and Florida has one of the largest and growing school voucher programs in the country.
The Wall Street Journal weighed in with an Op-ed yesterday: (behind the subscription firewall)
Asked in a radio interview this week about the Justice Department's recent lawsuit to block Louisiana's school voucher program, Education Secretary Arne Duncan pleaded ignorance. "I'm not familiar with that lawsuit," said the man whose department scrutinizes state education reforms in great detail as part of the Race to the Top competition. "That's between the Department of Justice and the state of Louisiana."
The Advocate daily newspaper in Baton Rouge reports that former Justice Department Civil Rights chief Thomas Perez, who is now Labor Secretary, was nosing around the state earlier this year. On Thursday we reported that Mr. Perez had threatened California with a loss of federal cash if it didn't exempt Teamster and Amalgamated Transit Union transit workers from pension reforms. If Mr. Perez is now also running education policy, it really is time for Mr. Duncan to leave.The ironies of the Obama Administration and his Cabinet just continue on and on......so who's next on their hit list?
