(Part 1, in which Senators who send their kids to expensive private schools vote against giving poor families the same option.)

Joe Gandelman at Dean's World points to an article claiming that the children of public school teachers attend private schools at twice the national rate.

Nationwide, 12.2 percent of all families in urban, rural and suburban settings send their children to private schools. But 21.5 percent of urban public-school teachers send their children to private schools. ...

The study's authors came to several conclusions why urban public-school teachers send their children to private schools at a higher rate, including the fact that teachers are generally conservative and have long been discerning connoisseurs of education.

Public school teachers tend to be conservative?! Yeah, I'm so sure. That kind of idiocy brings the whole study into doubt, but there's no question that teachers are "discerning connoisseurs of education" in the sense that they can't escape noticing the fact that public education sucks.
