That's how the state's largest labor union describes the proposed New Hope Scholarship Act, which would have allowed roughly 0.16 percent of the state's public school students to attend private schools.

Think about that. It would be nothing short of "devastating" if 0.16 percent of the kids leave. The unions know what they know: Their product is unsatisfactory, and if students have a chance to escape, there's not much doubt that untold thousands will in fact try to escape.
