"On the same day that the New York Times reports that charters and competition have caused an unprecedented collapse of education in Detroit, the Wall Street Journal reports that the Walton Family Foundation (Walmart) will pump another $250 million this year alone into starting more new charters. The Waltons-- charter members to the EDUCATIONAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, are doubling down on failure. They are doing to public schools what Walmart does to communities: destroying the competition, disrupting the community, and targeting public education for privatization. The Waltons have undermined American workers and home-grown businesses. Now it wants to drive public schools out of business with the same predatory techniques."
