Despite overwhelming support for the District of Columbia’s school choice program, even from mainstream media outlets that are typically hostile to decentralization of government control, Democrats may kill the program.
In the last election cycle, the top teachers’ unions (which are, of course, intensely opposed to voucher programs) spent more in contributions to candidates than the top defense contractors. The teachers’ unions donations also skewed far more heavily Democratic. The next top five lobbying firms combined didn’t equal the monetary efforts that the teachers’ unions were able to muster.
