Elena Silva was quoted in Chalkbeat Indiana on contradictory ideology related to such issues as school vouchers and state-funded preschool.
Elena Silva, a researcher at New America, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank, said this contradictory ideology isn’t unusual. She’s seen the same rhetoric across the nation that upholds vouchers as freedom of choice and expansive state-funded preschool as government intrusion. But regardless of which side you sit on, she said, the result is the same: The state taking on a greater role in education.
“As soon as you enter into that,” Silva said. “You are essentially shaking hands with the government.”
