 "Ultican writes a series of brilliant studies of cities where the Destroy Public Education Movement works to undermine& privatize its public schools. The business leaders think they are innovative, but in fact they echo the same stale cliches and Orwellian lies,  as corporate reformers in other cities. The slogan of the moment is that Dallas (and apparently all of Texas) wants “a system of great schools,” not “a great school system.” Ultican’s history of Dallas education in the crosshairs of the Privatization Movement is richly detailed; It involves the brief tenure of a Broadie who arrived with great fanfare, then departed without having accomplished any of his grand goals. Diane Ravitch says:  It is safe to predict that nothing positive will come of the money lavished by elites to privatize the schools. It hasn’t succeeded anywhere else, and it won’t succeed in Dallas."
