Sarah Lahm is an independent journalist based in Minneapolis. It is impossible,  to join Williams’ in his unbridled praise for charter schools without fully examining the “ecosystem” of funding, hype and political support that prop up such “schools of choice.” To embrace the racially and economically marginalized population of the Hiawatha Academies charter chain, which Williams tries but fails to defend, would be to also, presumably, embrace the nearly all-white charter schools that also exist in the Twin Cities. Williams revives yet another stale debate by trying to prop up Hiawatha’s racially and economically segregated charters'  'Is that what it means to be a progressive or a liberal?' asks  Ravitch.  'No, it is not. Don’t let the kind of propaganda peddled by Williams and the Kramer family convince you otherwise.'
