Diane Ravitch says: 'I like this post by Peter Greene a lot because it clears up confusion about what defines a public school. Many people think that charter schools are public schools because most state laws define them as “public charter schools.” The charter industry wrote the state laws, and they desperately wanted to be considered “public schools” so they could qualify for the same funding as public schools (in Texas, they get even more funding than real public schools). The proliferation of corporate charter chains make it even harder to see charter schools as public schools, since nowhere in the history of public schools were multiple schools managed by a corporation. Read, because If your school doesn’t meet these minimal requirements, it is not a public school. '

Another example of ed reform mandates on the public schools they don't support:

"Districts could build on this transparency by requiring that at the end of this school year, teachers engage in open, honest, two-way conversations with parents about how well their child is prepared for the next grade and work with families to design plans to address learning loss"

They've abandoned public schools in favor of promoting, marketing and funding charters and vouchers. So why are public school students still stuck with their mandates?

Couldn't we find people who actually value public schools and public school students to write policy that applies to public schools? Why does the charter/voucher lobby direct what happens in public schools?
