Who's abandoning whom?

State Sen. Judy Eason McIntyre, a liberal Democrat from Tulsa, believes Oklahoma parents should have more school choices. The former social worker and longtime Tulsa Public Schools board member isn't "abandoning public education," as some of her critics charge. Rather, she wonders if public education has abandoned the children. In this clip from a recent press conference announcing the release of a new public opinion survey, Sen. Eason McIntyre calls on the bureaucrats and the school-employee labor unions to acknowledge the "failure of the system" and argues for the "right of parents to be able to choose."
