Learn more about the FAKE claims of the corporate movement to reform and privatize our K-12 public education systems. The ed-reform movement is all about money and nothing about educating our children. The ed-reformers are liars and frauds drowning in their own corruption and greed.
The political/bureaucratic education reform machine that began with the bogus A Nation at Risk report under Ronald Reagan has been aided and abetted for almost 40 years now by the feckless mainstream media (MSM).
That education reform agenda has been a recurring pattern of overstated and unmerited polices grounded in ideology, but education reformers are powerful advocates, bolstering their reforms with more public relations than expertise; the MSM repeatedly falls for the hucksterism hook, line, and sinker.
In the ugly and harmful lineage of education reform “miracles”—Texas, Chicago, Washington DC, Tennessee, etc.—comes the new darling of education reform mirages, New Orleans:
- Opinion | Following New Orleans’s lead on charter-school education, Emily Langhorne
- How New Orleans Is Helping Its Students Succeed, David Leonhardt
Not surprising, but always disappointing, is that education-related media remain deeply misleading, and thus, complicit in an education reform movement more dedicated to dismantling than reforming universal…

“Radical Eyes for Equity”, could you explain why you feel parents should not be able to choose a school for their children? And could you explain how giving parents a choice of schools will somehow mean the end to public schools? And could you explain why you only give examples of struggling charter schools, when so many are doing so well? And could you explain why the closing of a bad charter school is a bad thing, compared to a bad public school that perpetually remains open, harming more and more students? Bad schools should close – so kids can go to good schools. Schools chosen by their parents; parents who keep the school accountable. Could you explain? Thank you.

Sorry, this one is on you. I’m not answering your questions even though I already know all the answers.
If you are willing to learn on your own, I’ll provide a reading list where you can find all the answers to your list of questions that demonstrates a lot of ignorance and/or bias — probably both. I’m not playing this rigged game.
If you aren’t willing to learn, I’m not going to waste my time explaining why this flawed concept of school choice that was created by liars, carpetbaggers, pirates, and frauds is totally wrong.

‘myfellowteachers’ claims that I insulted ‘myfellowteachers’. Since ‘myfellowteachers’ uses a sock puppet name, there is no way to know who ‘myfellowteachers’ is.
Let’s see where I insulted this sock puppet. I alleged that ‘myfellowteachers’ questions demonstrated a lot of ignorance and/or bias.
I offered to provide a reading list.
I then commented that the “concept of school choice” was created by liars, carpetbaggers, pirates, and frauds.
I’m not sure if the previous sentence was the insult. If true, then ‘myfellowteachers’ must be one of the architects of school choice that takes public money from the public schools and gives that money to failed voucher schools that includes Islamic, Jewish, Chrisitan, et al, religious schools, for-profit corporate charter schools, alleged non-profit corporate charter schools, failed and fraudulent internet schools, et al. that pay more for administration costs and less for classroom expenses, while democratic public schools with elected school boards are starved for funds.
For instance, The problem with online charter schools (one of those choices that “myfellowteachers’ supports).
“The data shows that kids in on-line charter schools are falling way behind.”

I’m sorry you are more interested in insulting me than engaging in reasoned and respectful debate.
