  •  How about neighborhood schools, with like (3+ / 0-)

    books and supplies?  That might work and it is a lot cheaper than funding the Charter movement.

    I find it so funny that people think the Charter movement/coporate merit pay/anti-union crowd is "challenging the status quo".  That crowd IS the status quo.  These reformers are not coming from nowhere.  They're billionaires who want to take the same approach they reformed labor markets with to education.  How'd that work out for the middle class?

    •  there seems to be a misconception (3+ / 0-)

      that charter schools are somehow cheaper than public schools. The charter school I worked in had no library, but was able to hire six-figure consultants to determine and implement curriculum. And one of them had been found guilty of fraud at her last public school job!

      There is virtually no oversight of charter schools anywhere.
