Answer: no it is not fair. That's why we need school choice
so that lower income children can go to the good schools. Talk about
something that ensures the divide between the rich and poor...it's our
current broken public school system.

And, Cat, you're absolutely right...the main block to school choice is the
teacher's unions. I agree with what the unions do to protect the rights,
pay, and benefits of the teachers, but hate the way they oppose anything
that will correct the unfairness of poorer children being stuck in absolutely
pathetic schools.
