More than 500 Teachers at the UNO/Acero charter chain in Chicago went on strike today, the first charter chain strike in history! The Kochs, Waltons etc... showered millions on Rangel and his UNO organization; he paid himself $250,000 a year,. But then things went terribly wrong, and Rangel had to resign.  Why? “ Rangel thought charter schools don’t have to play by the same rules as public schools.'” UNO collected a 10% management fee and Rangel hired his relatives for every part of the operation. The state gave him $98 million to build new charters, and UNO handed out fat contracts to friends and relatives, not realizing that the state contracts forbade conflicts of interest. When CTU went on strike in 2012, Rangel boasted that his charters were non-union, were open and had room for new students.  No accountability and NO LEARNING for the kids.

Taking out the schools is the MOST CRUCIAL ploy to ending democracy in America. An ignorant, unskilled citizenry will enable the charlatans to twist truth, and offer propaganda so they can do anything they please.

Chicago is not alone.Click hereto see the linksto CHARTER SCHOOL FRAUD at the Ravitch Blog.

Look at Arkansas:The Waltons have long coveted control of Little Rock's public schools.They have used their billions to leverage control of the State Education Department, the Legislature, and the State Education Board. As reported earlier this year, they passed a law "requiring Arkansas school districts to turn over buildings constructed with local property taxes . Read the Open Letter to the State Commissioner and Governor, written by Rev. Anika Whitfield, a pastor in Little Rock who believes in democracy and public education. It ends 'As tax paying residents of Little Rock, we demand elected representation from our selected peers.What is the ransom you require for Little Rock School District parents, guardians, students, and community supporters to pay for you to release our district back to us now?'

In 15,800 separate school system s in 50 separate states, this kind of treachery is ongoing, as our citizens watch the Trump circus and the schools fail, so they can be privatized.

See all my series, here at Oped, and learn how OUR schools are being destroyed. Here is my series on 'privatization.'

Or go the blog of Diane Ravitch--FORMER Assistant SECRETARY OF STATE is a research professor of education at New York University and the co-founder of theNetwork for Public Education, a grassroots advocacy organization. and follow the devastation.

The Demolition of American Education is ongoing.
