Anne Russell: A sane decision

Regarding the Aug. 22 news article “Judge blocks school vouchers”: Thanks to Judge Robert Hobgood for his ruling, which injected sanity into the crazy idea that our public tax dollars may go into the pockets of private schools, which are not public schools and which promote religion and give huge profits to administrators of these schools.

And Roy Cooper sure better recoup any voucher money that has been disbursed in defiance of Hobgood’s ruling or I won’t support him for governor.

I come from five generations of educators and am horrified by the Republican assault on public education. Where are Terry Sanford and Bill Friday when we need them most?
