Choice in TV but not education?

PRI’s Lloyd Billingsley writes an excellent piece on video choice and education. The key question he asks is why California’s left-leaning democrats think competition is good in cable, but not for education. Here’s an excerpt:

Speaker Nunez is right that we need more choice, quality and lower prices in television service. If he follows that logic, he would push to empower California’s parents and students by giving them choice in education. That, of course, would require defiance of public employee unions.
