Is school choice the civil rights issue of our time? We’re pretty sure Texas State Rep. Gene Wu would say no, seeing as he’s been on a tear against school vouchers for a good part of the day while arguing for “mo money” for struggling schools. Here is just a sample of today’s tweets.

Arguing not to fund struggling schools is like saying: “why fund the police, there is still so much crime?” #txlege #txed

A well educated workforce = more good jobs = fewer on welfare = fewer prisoners = lower future tax burden. #txed #txlege

Mo money = lower classroom size, training for teachers, school supplies, counselors for college prep… etc. #txed #txlege

Same people who argue against Pre-K … send their own kids to Pre-K. #oops

When Texas fires 11,000 teachers in one year, you’re not cutting fat, that’s bone. #txed #txlege

— Gene Wu (@GeneforTexas) March 21, 2013

Public Schools & Charters are rapidly expanding school choice. Every penny LOST to vouchers DECREASES this CHOICE. #txlege #txed

Lemme spell it out for ya: Vouchers DO NOT equal Choice. Privatization benefits the few on the backs of the many. #txed #txlege

[email protected]genefortexas Why do you hate children?

If Wu’s Twitter feed today is an opening skirmish in the Democrat #WaronChildren, we like our chances. Teachers unions should be mobilizing soon to defend Wu on Twitter, but in the meantime, he’s facing quite a battle against school choice advocates.

@exjon Most of the Texas left is engaged in a #WarOnChildren, sadly. I see it constantly working to support #HB300.

@genefortexas How about supporting children over unions? @texasaft

This is the reason @genefortexas doesn’t care about failing schools –> twitter.com/genefortexas/s… – he is a teacher union hack.

Gene Wu, clearly in the pocket of the teacher’s unions and no regard for educating kids. #txed @genefortexas

@melissatweets @genefortexas Screw the unions. It’s all about THEM and NOT the kids.Education pro-choice!

Wait, so you agree that it benefits students? MT @genefortexas: Privatization benefits the few on the backs of the many. #txed #txlege

Let me guess, @genefortexas , you spell CHOICE p-o-o-r e-d-u-c-a-t-i-o-n . Try selling your hogwash to parents of NFISD kids in Houston

— Joe Martinez (@CypressNut) March 21, 2013

@rhondako @melissatweets Yes, @genefortexas can’t allow kids to escape failed government schools & succeed. They wouldn’t need him anymore.

— T.R. Talbert (@ctsa) March 21, 2013

YES THEY DO MT @genefortexas: Vouchers DO NOT equal Choice. Privatization benefits the few on the backs of the many.#txlege

Also, @genefortexas a voucher is more choice than being stuck in a failing school. Way to stick up for the system instead of the student.

— Melissa Clouthier (@MelissaTweets) March 21, 2013

Democrats and education: System > Students. Every. Single. Time. @genefortexas is Exhibit “A”. #TXLege

— Melissa Clouthier (@MelissaTweets) March 21, 2013

I am PRO SCHOOL CHOICE. I am pro child. Guys like @genefortexas are pro-system, anti-choice bigots. #TXLege

— Melissa Clouthier (@MelissaTweets) March 21, 2013

@genefortexas – public Ed simply demands more $, less accountability and no choice. This is not acceptable. #txlege

@exjon @genefortexas Let me set it straight for you Wu.You’re lying about vouchers.You do not care about children.You’re a loser.

— cool hand (@hardrighthand) March 21, 2013

Gene Wu is the first Texas legislator to block me. Kudos, @genefortexas and best of luck with your #WarOnChildren.

— Jon Gabriel (@ExJon) March 21, 2013

MT @genefortexas EVERY penny lost to vouchers take away a charter slot | a penny per slot? Not sure that math works…

— Kevin Whited (@PubliusTX) March 21, 2013

It’s probably best not to take Wu’s advice when it comes to math.
