'Suddenly, everyone calls themselves “Education” candidates, and boast (lie) how they have helped public schools. Don’t believe them. Any candidate funded by the Koch brothers, The Walton Family, Eli Broad, Reed Hastings, or Michael Bloomberg is a Pro-Charter Candidate.  Here is the Walton 2020 plan: They are coming to privatize your public school and replace it with a national corporate chain school. Denis Smith worked for many years for the Ohio Department of Education. He has written many articles about the scams and frauds that charter operators get away with in Ohio, as well as some that they don't get away with. He wrote to say that the five most common words in 'charterdom 'are:“The defendant will please rise.” See links in the comments for more about Charter School Fraud!

1- As we know, the charter school movement --the darling of ALEC, the Koch brothers, and every rightwing governor and think tank -- began as a way to help public schools by encouraging innovation. However, in the past 25 years, it has evolved into an industry that is bent on privatization and that shamelessly diverts money and real estate from public schools. In this article, Paul Buchheit describes the dark role that charter schools now play on behalf of corporate elites and their determination to privatize public education for fun and profit.

Here is "A new report from the Center for Popular Democracy, Integrity in Education, and Action United i which s blowing the lid off the lack of public oversight at Pennsylvania's 186 charter schools.

Also from the Ravitch blog: " "The charter school "debate" is no longer about charter schools vs. public schools (charters are not public schools -- that myth has been exploded), or even about "for profit" vs. "not for profit" charters (the evidence HERE suggests this is really a difference without a distinction)."

"No, the real issue here is about the true purpose of education, and whether continuing to support two separate but unequal, and inequitable, school systems is doing anything to improve education for all children. By any objective measure, the answer is a resounding "NO!"

"The charter lobby has attempted, through spending millions of dollars on PR and marketing, to redefine the purpose of education from one about producing well-rounded citizens who are capable of making valuable contributions to our society and leading fulfilling lives, to a business-driven agenda of producing workers for corporate America. The latter "purpose" now drives much of our state and federal education legislation, which is rife with references to "21st Century Skills," and insuring that high school graduates are stamped as being "college and career-ready"

.What the charter chains overlook is that the purpose of education is to prepare young people for lives of caring, compassion, and responsibility."This is a radical repurposing of a public goal to meet the needs of private corporations, and is echoed in the mission and "vision" statements of the leading charter school management companies
