The unjust, undemocratic implications of legal proceedings carried out at night were obvious 2,000 years ago, just as they should be today. But in today’s Alabama, political hypocrites Del March, Gerald Dial, Chad Fincher and Jay Love, aided and abetted by Speaker Mike Hubbard and Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey, totally rewrote school-funding legislation in the middle of the night in order to avoid the vetting and public discussion that justice and open meeting laws require to be held in the light of day. Co-conspirator Gov. Robert Bentley immediately approved, then signed it into law.
Thus, Alabama now has public taxpayer money going to private schools as a result of the most unjust, undemocratic law since the days of Jim Crow. Small wonder the Alabama Education Association, the State Department of Education, the State Superintendents of Education, the Alabama Association of School Boards and the Council for Leaders of Alabama Schools have expressed concern over the law.
My children grew up in public schools and my taxes support public education, not private. Let private schools raise their own money. Del Marsh can stay out of my wallet.
Marsh, Hubbard, Ivey, Bentley, et al., you’re a disgrace. This will not stand.
