 Rochester mayor Warren,told the NYS Ed Dep't & the Bd of Regents to take over the city's public schools, oust the elected board, and appoint a different board of its choosing The state has not expressed a desire to take control of Rochester schools, but  the mayor  has decided to throw them under the bus, abandon local control, and let the state take responsibility.Warren said parents who send their kids to city schools are “sacrificing” children.'  That’s what got us into this mess. We have a segregated school system because of the wholesale disinvestment in our schools. We have children denied opportunities because of where they were born. What would happen, Barnhardt asks, if all parents returned to the public schools instead of abandoning them? What would happen if everyone acknowledged that we have a common fate and we must stand together?

"We will never fix the schools long as we refuse to acknowledge that separate is not equal."

15,880 separate schools systems in 50 states!

This is how it is done. One by one... instead of investing in our public education system, they derail local control, and hardit over to the state, which then gives it to the corporate entities and charter schools.Iit is all about $$$ not kids... and thus our future citizens will be wage-slaves with little knowledge and skills...and ignorance will replace knowledge of democracy.
