Tweet Jennifer Hudson: Do Not Support Billionaires Privatizing Public Schools!

28 Sep

The Waltons, the Broads, the Paul Tudor Jones family, and other hedge fund managers and equity investors are the billionaire families behind the growth of corporate Charter schools. They are not for quality public schools for ALL children. Their schools will exclude children with disabilities, English language learners, students returning from prison, and children with behavior problems. All of these children will be dumped in the public schools, while their more fortunate peers are skimmed off. The price to do things their way is to surrender our transparent, non-profit, community based public schools to them—and of course only our best children, who will then be treated as if they are in a totally autocratic Marine Corps boot camp.

The billionaires’ front group called “Families for Excellent Schools” has enlisted the actress Jennifer Hudson to support their campaign for charter schools. She probably thinks these are regular families, not realizing that the “Families” are the Waltons, the Broads, the Paul Tudor Jones family, and other hedge fund managers and equity investors. These are the billionaire families, not the people who need quality public schools for ALL children. Their schools will exclude children with disabilities, English language learners, students returning from prison, and children with behavior problems. All of these children will be dumped in the public schools, while their more fortunate peers are skimmed off. Then the boasting begins. FES is the same organization that has tried to derail Mayor de Blasio’s progressive agenda for children and heaped tens of millions on charter schools, not public schools. Please, Jennifer Hudson, don’t be fooled!
