'This is the most important story you will read today. It is a warning about where School Choice is heading, what it will do to the democratic institution of the public schools, what it has already done to the schools of one district in California. If we don’t reverse the tide, more districts will be drowned by choice and debt.  It is a textbook case of the destruction of a small district, brought low by NCLB, then strangled and left for dead by a series of Broad-trained superintendents and the steady expansion of privately managed charter schools. The story of Inglewood is an indictment of the so-called reform movement, which destroyed the public schools of that district.'

"How much longer before large school districts like San Diego and Los Angeles -- with 25% or more of their students in privatized schools -- are forced into bankruptcy and taken over by the state? Both districts are currently running massive deficits caused primarily by charter school privatization and unfair special education costs."
