'When the charter industry decides to expand in your district or state, one thing is certain: Bitter divisiveness follows! School board elections become pitched battles between friends of charters and friends of public schools. Parents fight over who goes to charter schools and over resources taken away from public schools to fund charter schools. One of the most heated school board races this fall will take place in Nashville, where the charter industrial complex has targeted board members who support public schools. The money is pouring in from wealthy contributors to knock out people who have fought to keep the charter zealots from destroying public education. Rich corporate leaders and right-wingers are funding the charteristas.Tired of seeing the board led by supporters of public education, the privatizers are moving to defeat the board members who have stood in their way.'
