Here's hope for those who would like to see school-choice vouchers, tuition tax credits and private scholarships give the majority of Nebraskans some alternatives to public schools. It's a $20 book / position paper, ''Voucher Wars: Waging the Legal Battle Over School Choice,'' by Clint Bolick, the attorney for the groundbreaking Cleveland school-choice program and others.
There's a review on www.educationnews.org/an-insider.htm that talks about the administrative stonewalling, legislative roadblocks and legal battles that advocates of school choice face. It is said that the unions and school districts have ''Vise-Grip'' control over state legislatures.
So? Vise-Grip locking pliers were invented in Nebraska (Danish immigrant Bill Peterson, DeWitt, Neb., 1924). We know how they work.
Which means we know how to unlock them, too . . . do what's necessary to make school choice a reality here . . . or we would, if enough of us got books like this and got together on this key issue.
