REMEMBER, when you read this, that  it is your tAx money that would support public education, that goes to these private schools, sold as 'choice! The findings on the charter industry were dismal  in The NEA  2019 report!. As one would expect, public money+weak regulation+lax oversight=fraud, waste, and abuse. Of the 44 states that allow charters schools (plus D.C. and Puerto Rico), only five jurisdictions rate 'mediocre' or better The report concludes  that nearly every state (44 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) is failing to require adequate oversight over the charter school sector. Statutes in forty states received “F” grades. Five states that have laws requiring some oversight received “mediocre” ratings, with grades ranging from “D” to “C-“.

Remember, also, that it education gives our people the skills to do work, and thus, by destroying public education for all he people a! What you are witnessing something to which the nation is blinded is the EFFECT/impact of removal of the INSTITUTION of public education (it ain't just about 'the schools)"

This is about income inequality. ( You saw this video before; don't lose the link" it is wonderful" and not even recent! Watch it again on the plane!!)

You see, the power-elite, ( of whom Betsy DeVos is a perfect example) need to make wage-slaves of the people in this nation. Look at what Mitch McConnell says out loud ! OMG!

For shame!

and look who loves private schools.

Maurice Cunningham, a dogged investigator of Dark Money, has discovered a shell operation funded by the multibillionaire Walton family.

It is called the "National Patents Union," and its goal is to defund public schools and transfer public money to private hands.

In case you don't have time to read the full report released by "In the Public Interest" about the real costs of charter schools, Jan Resseger has done it for you.

Legislators pretend that charters are simply a "choice," and pay no attention to the fiscal damage they impose on the public schools that educate the majority of children and lose revenue. Thus, the decision to have more charters reduces the quality of education for the majority of children in the district or the state.
