Well, unless you have a mechanism for civil rights protection, schools can practice discrimination. Don't say it, I'm sure you think that discrimination doesn't exist anywhere anymore either.

It is obvious that you do not understand why African-American parents are so eager to get their children out of D.C. schools.

After all, why should they want to leave the wonderful (LOL) learning environment that defines D.C. schools?  What you are not laughing?  I can understand your feelings.  It is sad very sad.  Is there anyone who believes that the D.C. schools are good for students?

It is very sad indeed.

Oh yes but as you say, these public school students have their civil rights.

If you are opposed to school vouchers because the students lose their civil rights, then you are opposed to private schools.  Using your logic, any parent who sends his or her child to a private school must be either uncaring or uninformed.

But, of course, parents send their children to private schools for the same reason that these D.C. parents wanted vouchers for private schools.  They want what is best for their children. 

And you must realize that many of our public/elected officials send their children to private schools.

A little aside
Just to let the reader know, I realize that some D.C. public schools are much better than others.  http://www.schooldigger.com/go/DC/schoolrank.aspx?pagetype=top10
