TRUTH! The California Charter School Association is a super-rich, highly political power broker in politics that wants to control every possible seat in the state legislature so it can pursue its goal of mass privatization of public schools across the Golden State.The fight over c harter schools in California is really a fight over the future of public education in the state. Will there be public education 20 years from now, or will community schools be run by entrepreneurs and charter chains whose corporate leaders are based in other states? If you live in the 43rd Assembly District, please vote for Ardy Kassakhian. DON'T LET THE BILLIONAIRES BUY YOUR PUBLIC SCHOOL. : $28 million was spent by outside groups on state races, one-third coming from groups supporting charter schools.
