sugar out
 v. phr.— «But I know that union representatives balk at such ignoble motivations and like to point instead to the value and importance of public schools in American life. When I was a school choice advocate in Vermont, these impassioned arguments “sugared out” (to use a Vermont term) into opinions like these: public schools are where we all learn to get along, public schools prevent the “Balkanization” of Americans, and private schools, with their lack of accountability (of course), could lead to fringe institutions promoting everything from witchcraft to Nazism.» —“Utah Leads the Way” by Libby Sternberg New York Sun Oct. 1, 2007.
