Obama slammed on education

Obama sends his kids to a private school but doesn't think ALL Americans are good enough to have the same opportunity?

Newsmax.com - McCain Slams Obama Over Education Policies ORLANDO, Fla. - John McCain, the father of private school students, criticized Democratic rival Barack Obama on Friday for choosing private over public school for his kids.

The difference, according to the Arizona Republican, is that he not Obama favors vouchers that give parents more school choices.

"Everybody should have the same choice Cindy and I and Sen. Obama did," McCain told the National Urban League, an influential black organization that Obama will address on Saturday.

McCain listed a variety of changes in education policies that he contended would improve a flawed system from school choice to more local control and direct public support to parents for tutoring. In each case, he said Obama came up short.

"My opponent talks a great deal about hope and change, and education is as good a test as any of his seriousness," he said. "If Sen. Obama continues to defer to the teachers unions instead of committing to real reform, then he should start looking for new slogans."
