Attorney General Bill Barr went on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” to address a Democrat scheme to exploit American children around the nation.
When asked about examples of racism in the United States, Barr said, “look no further than our public education system. That’s a racist system, maintained by the Democratic Party and the teachers union.”
Barr’s strong condemnation of the current public education system hits home for many minority communities who have been trapped in failing schools for decades.
Barr continued saying, “That’s a racist system, maintained by the Democratic Party and the teachers union, keeping inner-city kids in failing schools, instead of putting the resources in the hands of the parents to choose the schools to send their kids to. That’s empowering kids. That’s giving them a future.”
President Trump’s administration has made school choice a top objective, in spite of the vigorous opposition from the Democrat party hellbent on maintaining the status quo.
Progressives have been crying foul about so-called “institutional racism” but when President Trump wants to make changes they instead defend those institutions. Reform is long overdue and President Trump is doing good work to push it through.
