This is peanuts, and not nearly enough money to get a new school off the ground.'

Diane Ravitch, former ass't Secretary of Education writes: "No, Mr. Mayor. Turning 40 schools over to Laurene Powell Jobs, who knows zip about education, and the Robin Hood Foundation, which has raised millions for Eva Moskowitz's Success Academy charter chain and other charter operators, is definitely not an endorsement of public education. It is a slap in the face to the city's thousands of experienced, dedicated educators."
