Houston activist Kandice Webber describes the fraud that is the charter school system. Most importantly she provides a path for the community to take back their public schools vie engagement.

Watch the entire episode here.

Webber appeared on Politics Done Right recently where she discussed her confrontation with Democratic Presidential candidate, Senator Cory Booker, at the last Democratic Debate. The above video clip is important because Kandice deconstructs the fraud that is the Charter School system. She did not pull any punches as she made her case concisely.

Webber points out that calling them nonprofits is just a technicality. It is the incestuous relationships between protagonists in the fraud that use the bodies of mostly people of color and the poor as commodities.

Kandice Webber used the tribulations she has had with the Houston Independent School district to make her case. She did what any good activist would do as she confronted Democratic Primary Presidential Candidate, Senator Cory Booker.

More importantly, it was clear she knew the issue and as such platitudes that generally work with the corporate mainstream media did not fly.

Below is the actual confrontation between Kandice Webber and Democratic Presidential Candidate Cory Booker.
