Billionaires have assembled a fund of $725,000 (so far) to defeat Washington state Supreme Court justice Barbara Madsen. The money is  funneled through a group called 'Stand for Children.'  Why are the billionaires eager to oust Judge Madsen? 

She wrote the 6-3 decision in 2015 that declared that charter schools are not public schools under the state constitution & are not eligible to receive public funding devoted solely to democratically governed public schools. For daring to thwart their insistence on charter schools, the billionaires decided that Judge Madsen had to go.  But what is this group “Stand for Children” that is a willing handmaiden to the whims of billionaires who hate public schools?
