If you want to get past the carefully contrived rhetoric to make an appealing plausible story, and i f you want a deep dive into the policies favored and promoted by all of the interrelated projects & organizations read this post --  a look at the underlying narratives created by the top organizations that seek to  convince people to support public funding of privately managed schools.'  And remember: ' Research by the Network for Public Education shows that in some states, as many as 40% of charters were failures.'Dr. Ravitch adds:' My personal view, based on the rigorous research into the federal Charter Schools Program, is that this program should be completely abolished. Every presidential candidate should be asked if they will eliminate federal funding for new charter schools and direct the funding to Title I or other programs that meet genuine needs, not satisfy billionaires’ egos.'
