James Carville and School Choice

I applaud Democratic strategist James Carville for speaking at National School Choice Week in New Orleans (see the video here).  School choice has its positives and its negatives, and I will not debate it in this post.  But I admire people who think outside of the box of their own ideologies—-whether those people are on the Right or the Left.  Should the money that is spent on school choice be used instead to make public schools better?  I can see legitimacy in that point of view.  But a lot of the African-American people in the video are probably not right-wing Republicans, and yet they are happy to be given a choice regarding their kids’ education.
