Here is a  powerful series about the Jeb Crow school industry and how its sole purpose is to destroy public education without helping kids. All of the articles are referenced in this post, the last of the series, and has demonstrated how  voucher schools are highly segregated and low-quality. He refers to them as 'failure factories' but now calls them 'Jeb Crow' schools,  to credit former Governor Jeb Bush for creating the Big Lie that school choice saves children. It doesn't. Townsend throws out a challenge to reformers who are sincere, if there are any, about equity and helping kids: 'Serious “reformers” — those who actually mean it when they use the moral, racialized language of equity in justifying punitive policies that destroy public education capacity — know today that their entire life’s work is bullshit that failed on its own terms.'
