DAILYKENN.com -- Arne Duncan says we should boycott government schools.
Duncan is the former Dept. of Education Secretary, serving under Barack Obama.
Duncan says the boycott should extend until gun laws are changed.
I would amend Duncan's view: Boycott government schools until the Second Amendment is abolished and NEVER abolish the Second Amendment.
From The Washington Post ▼
Duncan said in an interview Saturday that the idea was intended to be provocative but that an aggressive approach like a school boycott is needed if gun laws are ever going to change. He has school-age children and said if this idea were to gain traction, his family would participate.
“It’s wildly impractical and difficult,” Duncan said. “But I think it’s wildly impractical and difficult that kids are shot when they are sent to school.”
Those killed in Texas were at Sante Fe High School.
Duncan is the managing partner of Chicago Cred, an organization that works to curb gun violence in Chicago.
A school boycott, Duncan said, is just one suggestion, and he said he’d consider other creative ideas that could impel policy changes.
“I’m open to other ideas, I’m open to different ideas, but I’m not open to doing nothing,” Duncan said. “We will see whether this gains traction, or something does, but we have to think radically.”
