“Thirty pieces of silver” is not worth undermining democratic rights and free universal public education. 'TNTP only exists because billionaires have financed them.  The last tax return from TNTP (Sep. 2017) listed the top 12 paid employees and all of them made more than $200,000 per year.  Before the billionaire driven push to privatize public education a “non-profit” company like TNTP would have gotten no consideration for training teachers because they were unqualified. TNTP says it has laudable goals but why would any school district or state education department turn to an organization with minimal academic background and experience to train teachers and school leaders? If policy makers in New York wanted to create and alternative teacher certification path, they would have turned to an established institution like Columbia University’s Teachers College.'

Public schools are getting hammered by the loss of public tax dollars that have been divertedfrom public school finances into charter and choice school accounts. Charters, having forgotten the era when they bragged that they could do more with less, complain that they are underfunded compared to public schools. Peter Greene points out in this post that legislatures have a nasty habit of overlooking the central question about charter schools: their funding.

They pretend that they can run two publicly funded school systems without any additional cost.

They pretend that the funding for charters is not subtracted from the funding for public schools.

The war on public education is a war on our people... token them ignorant and unskilled serfs.

It is Shared knowledge that MAKES DEMOCRACY POSSIBLE.An ignorant citizenry is the goal, not just the profit made by the businesses that take over our schools.
