OPINION: Vouchers Will Improve Public Schools

From The Daily Journal:

The timing of a recent lawsuit by the Indiana State Teachers Association against Indiana’s school voucher program perfectly demonstrates the calculated disregard for the welfare of students and taxpayers that has come to define this teachers union.
