Katrina "vouchers" revisited

Ted Kennedy supports them, but, er, technically they’re not vouchers. He’s right (yes, you read that correctly); he and his Senate colleagues a proposing a voucher-like form of per capita aid to public and private schools that have taken in Katrina victims. However "temporary" and "pragmatic" this proposal is, Kennedy is conceding the high ground to proponents of school choice. I’m happy; Barry Lynn of Americans United is apoplectic. I wonder if his organization will take the politically unpalatable step of filing a lawsuit against a program to aid Katrina victims.

You and Mr. Lynn should have a public debate sometime. That would certainly be interesting!
