'The LA Times published an editorial chastising the California Teachers Association for resisting privatization of public education via charters. It is a Blatant falsehood-- FAKE NEWS -- when they say that teachers’ unions protect their jobs by fighting off the billionaire's agenda! FYI: Billionaire Eli Broad subsidizes the Times' education coverage, which is a blatant conflict of interest. The editorial board can’t see why parents and graduates of public schools (like me) think that turning public money over to private and unaccountable boards is a terrible idea. One would think that a major newspaper would worry about the power of big money to buy local school board elections or the numerous scandals associated with charter schools in LA and throughout California. Does the LATimes recognize that charter schools skim the students they want and dump the ones they don’t want?'
