The entire situation is a government-sponsored disgrace (as documented here and here), but the MSM has not covered this AT ALL. Shameful.
See coverage of yesterday's rally here and here. More than 1000 concerned parents and other folks who care about quality education were involved.
A piquant bit of reporting: "A father of a scholarship student pointed out the hypocrisy of Congress bailing out failing corporations but taking scholarships away from D.C. students."
I am tempted to label this mess "felony stupidity," but I have a nasty feeling that the Congressional rascals involved weren't acting out of idiocy as much as cynical kissing-up to special interests (like teachers' unions, etc.).
