Jennifer Burke, co-founder and co-editor of The Politistick, a news and opinion site, recently appeared on Fox News to talk about Donald Trump reaching out to black voters.
Burke said she’s not a huge Trump supporter but believes he’s right about Democratic policies and the state of black Americans under President Barack Obama.
She noted that Democrats call themselves the party of choice, “but they’re not the party of choice when it comes to something that’s going to actually be beneficial to children, period, but especially black children.”
What choice is that? School choice, which opens up more options for parents “to give their kids an actual shot at achieving the American dream.”
One of the hosts cited an Education Next poll that showed blacks prefer school choice. For example, 58 percent support school vouchers, and 44 percent support charter schools. Why do Democrats oppose school choice?
Burke said it’s all about control. From kindergarten through graduate schools, liberals control the policies.
“We’ve seen [schools] turn more into indoctrination centers than actually teaching some of the core things that students should know,” she said. “That’s why kids graduate from high school, if they’re lucky, and…have to take some remedial courses in college, because they haven’t learned a lot of the things that they should learn.”
Government even “slowly dips its hand” into homeschooling to have control.
