From the political party that most frequently proclaims, “It’s for the children.”

“I’ve been a militant advocate, organizer and member of the Democratic Party for 30 years,” Catherine Durkin Robinson writes. “A few months ago, I quit identifying as a Democrat.”

“It had been building within me for a while. I could no longer stomach the Democratic Party’s support for an education system that hurts so many poor and working-class families.”

“Democratic Party politicians have repeated their lies about educational options so long, they’ve begun to believe those lies. And they do this while so many of them can afford to move into desirable neighborhoods with good schools, or send their children to private schools.”

“I wonder how they sleep at night.”
