Valley ACTION leader to pro-voucher Kasich : Take your bus and shove it

By Robert Guttersohn



Pastors, politicians and police officers gathered with the community Sunday for the 10th annual ACTION Forum themed “We are better together.”

The meeting served as a reflection of the past 10 years of ACTION’s existence and a reminder of what organizers see as future obstacles, including Issue 2 and the expansion of EdChoice voucher program.

Gov. John Kasich said to “get on the bus or get run over,” said ACTION Board President Lewis Macklin. “Little did we realize it was a school bus.”

He called the plan to expand the voucher program an “education apartheid.”

“We want to tell the governor to take his bus and shove it,” he said.

Lewis Macklin,

“We want to tell the governor to take his bus and shove it,” he said.

Exactly! That's right, Lewis !

Kasich, The governor of Ohio says, "get on the bus or get run over", ...he says, "break the backs of teacher's labor", ... he says, our police officer is an "idiot",...
Disgraceful! Pathetic! Disgusting!

What a belligerant human being!

**Vote NO, No, No on Issue 2!

Chicken Wing Macklin never saw a voucher he didn't like. When the government unions bankrupt our cities, there will be plenty of vouchers (food stamp, public transit, welfare, etc) to pass around.

With the exception of parochial and exclusive private schools, most non-public schools, i.e.,charters, have a poor record. They are managed for profit with very little concern for real education. Their employment practices (hiring, benefits, continuing education) are abysmal. The big charter corporations have very wealthy CEOs and underpaid staff. They teach children to perform on a test and actual learning is secondary: a poor way to educate but a great way to make money. If taxpayers are willing to permit their taxes be spent on private or for-profit schools, they should demand much better results. Why do we complain about our "poor" public schools instead of helping to fix them and permit charters to perform in a second-class manner? Our taxes are making many of them rich.
