Clinton Chooses Union Votes Over Children
Last year, Nevada’s Governor Brian Sandoval signed a bill giving students and parents greater school choice through education savings accounts.
Even though nearly 8,000 Nevada students have already applied to the program, teachers unions oppose greater school choice out of fear of competition and losing power.
Clinton has sought to win over teachers unions in this election by taking a hard line anti-school choice position.
Throughout her career, Hillary Clinton has been a staunch opponent of choice for students and parents, vowing to fight them “every breath” in her body and ridiculously claiming school choice will lead to a taxpayer funded “school of the jihad.”
Clinton repeatedly voted with school choice opponents and teachers unions while in the Senate, including voting against D.C.’s school choice program.
Last year, Clinton also caved to teachers unions on charter schools after being a supporter of charters “since the 1990s,” making statements “straight from charter school critics’ playbook.”
