    Paul "Skippy" Stam (R - Wake) has been hawking vouchers for charter schools down here in NC for several years now, and we only dodged the bullet last year because the bill didn't make the crossover deadline between the House and  Senate before the session ended.  Stam warned us that he'd be bringing the fight back to Raleigh when the new session began, and this time he got it pushed through.

    I'll be interested in seeing if the awarding of "vouchers" turns out to be distributed in a similar fashion here.  This was an angle I hadn't even considered when the NCGA slashed another $90M from the public education budget this year.

    I've read some of the charter school applications, and I can only hope that they weren't completed by teaching faculty.  A poorer grasp of written English by an alleged educator would be difficult to believe.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
