Dean of the Univ. of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, writes in The Nation about the sleight of hand played by advocates of school choice as they stage their illusion Orwellian named National School Choice Week! "The 'choice' they offer is actually a “Hobson’s Choice,” meaning no choice at all. If you leave your public school, you defund it, harming the education of those who remain. You won’t get a voucher large enough for the best private schools. You may get into a charter school but there is no assurance they will keep you. It is a hoax facilitated and funded by a coalition of education reform groups including Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education, Betsy, ALEC and others who long to destroy the public sector. Lurking beneath all the hoopla is the primary concern of its founders is to drive business toward the horse nearest the door, for-profit charter schools."
