A TELLING OMISSION: The New York Times just posted an  outstanding article on the privatization of public services. Except for one service which is crucial for a democracy that must share knowledge. Public schools are nOT included! An educated public is a dangerous thing. The article includes descriptions of what happens when hedge funds and equity investors take over communication, emergency services, and more. But not public schools. What happens when private investors need to make more money:  they slash costs and services.  Privatization, the hedge funders say, is “the civil rights issue of our time.” YOU bet it is! Charter schools are  replacing  public schools at  an insane  rate, and the media is NOT reporting it.   Please leave comments on the article and urge the reporters to turn their attention to public education  and the  privatization  of THIS CRUCIAL  institution.
