It just occurred to me that anti-union indoctrination will undoubtedly be a big part of the curriculum in the right-wing’s cherished voucher schools. Indeed, given right-wing hostility to teacher’s unions, and the role these play in the right’s demonization of public schools, this may in fact be a major objective of the voucher drive. The voucher hucksters certainly spend a lot of time yammering about gay communist union teachers, and contrasting these with the obedient and pure Christian (not to mention cheap) teachers they will employ. We concentrate on the anti-science and anti-enlightenment social agendas of these schools and their promoters, and for good reason. This should not lead us to ignore the more direct ways they can serve one of the most important objectives of the current right-wing, a cheap and docile labor force for the benefit of a self-defined elite.
