R U CONFUSED ABOUT CHARTER SCHOOLS? Diane Ravitch says."It is a classic case of wolf in sheep's clothing and is not 'progressive'. Charter cheerleaders say they are "saving poor kids from failing schools." In blue states, they portray themselves as progressive. They don't bother to explain their strange right-wing bedfellows. They expect us to believe that it is progressive to transfer funding from public schools to privately managed schools." EduShyster interviews a venerable civil rights leader in Boston, Mel King, who opposes charters. He says: "If the solution is only meant for a few kids, and all the rest of the kids are left out, where is the liberty and justice for all?"
