Turning An Argument On Its Ear

Is he a closet Republican or something?
CHRIS KENNEDY, the Chicago-area businessman and son of the late ROBERT F. KENNEDY who entered the Democratic race for governor last week, had some strong words about needed school improvements across the state — and in Springfield.

During an interview with The State Journal-Register, he mentioned the city's three public high schools.

He said at Lanphier and Southeast, "less than 10 percent of the kids who graduate ... are ready to go on to a university, enter a trade school, go to community college, or enter the workforce without remedial education. Ninety percent of those kids, therefore, are going to be doomed to a life of economic oppression"...

"The state needs to step in," Kennedy said. "What is the economic impact of having all of those people unable to take care of themselves? Where is the moral outrage in the community?"
His is the best argument for school choice that I've heard in a long time.
