ProPublica: How Teach for America Became An Arm of the Charter School Movement

19 Jun

TFA is a tool the Walmart Walton family uses in their subversion to take over the United States.

Diane Ravitch's blog

ProPublica reports on its investigation of the funding and mission of Teach for America, in which it discovered that TFA is an arm of the charter movement, which aims to replace public schools with non-union private charter school.

This is an eye-popping article, an exemplar of investigative reporting.

It begins:

When the Walton Family Foundation announced in 2013 that it was donating $20 million to Teach For America to recruit and train nearly 4,000 teachers for low-income schools, its press release did not reveal the unusual terms for the grant.

Documents obtained by ProPublica show that the foundation, a staunch supporter of school choice and Teach For America’s largest private funder, was paying $4,000 for every teacher placed in a traditional public school — and $6,000 for every one placed in a charter school. The two-year grantwas directed at nine cities where charter schools were sprouting up, including New…

        The reasons why about 40 percent of the people don’t seem to care is different across the spectrum. I really think for some reason Florida is an blain state where they ( mostly in Miami ) Most of the people ( Republicans with Conextion ( conflicts of interest , Trump’s follower can do whatever they want illegally and people who work for the government protect those individuals, California it’s not like that , right Lloyd ? I can see the spectrum this way , Florida is the most corrupt state in the nation , or. County of Jeb , yeah Lloyd ? Why public figures on that level can sleep knowing that most is not all that they had done done wrong . Doraida, Morejon , according her own daddy Julio Trump Morejon he got what protect him , an very unprofessional daughter and not only defending Trump Also seating behind a seat as federal prosecute judging people when they are the one who should be prosecute . There is no prison for those rich people in Dade county, many Trumps body’s are being bars and what about some or few at least from Trump DORAL International , the city that allowed people from the pentagon visit this city for pleasure and prostitution and more than that , using girls to get strong illegals drugs for consuming their self , the police at DORAL the chief police defending people like that ? Wow how far are going on the city where there is not sheriff. Florida 67 county’s and Dade county the only county without sheriffs it’s the fact and the way I see the spectrum Lloyd . Something to do to fight or removed those crooks . Ah Lloyd I’m celebrating now cause the Mayor of Hiealeah and his vice president of the Charter School where the incident happened to my children’s are out of the offices. Thanks for all of you who support me and the entire public schools and tell the truth about charters and Fredy’s Betsy DeVos is out as well as Trump. Time to celebrate my teacher and friend one of my best if not the best teacher I ever had . Thanks Lloyd. I miss a lot WordPress and thanks to Diane who at least hear from me and recommend me transfer my children’s to a Public school I did my daughter get an scholarship paid by her dedication and people like you and Diane . Take care! Lloyd what it does mean little finger? 😉

    Lloyd is like those excellent peoples that came from Cuba after 1959 people that expose the truth , those people where not allowed to goes back to Cuba because they said that Castro’s was a Dictator I agreed and I was interviewed by an Spanish television Channel and I told that Castro was as greedy as Trump as worst as trump and if I get kick out from here is because I stay saying that Trump is a Dictator and WALMART it’s a greedy who should realize that money is a problem. Trump could take everything from Walmart and from everyone as Castro did , if you don’t believe me ask to Jose Pepe Fanjul is a great person a Cuban American with heart . I’m from Florida , I love the freedom I was treated bad in Cuba and I been treated bad here because I told what I think it’s true!

      People like Trump and Castro, for example, don’t care what anyone else things. The power they have turns their ability to reason to cow dung.

        People like Trump and Castro, for example, don’t care what anyone else things. The power they have turns their ability to reason to cow dung ,regarding this to source * before post from you Lloyd ; The reasons why about 40 percent of the people don’t seem to care is different across the spectrum.

        60 years after Castro got the power people are still thinking wrong but today I’m America what the spectrum has is similar when Castro get into the control 1959 .
        America population isn’t small as Cuba populations but Russia population more than hundred and fifty millions people now confused and in the spectrums that is not much they can’t do , tells everyone that I said 2020 elections could be the last one legitimately elections , by the way trump won not the power clear , Russia interference did. What others say is up to them what the fact is what you knows Lloyd , Lloyd I told you this because you never has been told me nothing wrong regarding trump , I’m pretty sure 100 % sure that not many knew what you had before trump won , if people understand the mistake of vote blain or vote by routine is not as simple as it sounds it’s deeper my dear friend , I group up inside a Dictatorship and knew what it’s a suffering from no freedom of nothing . I called Cuba the Alcatraz of the Caribbean, I love San Francisco but I can’t afford the travel yet , I’m tired of red and I’m tired of Florida

      Who is trying — TFA?

      • reibelcastillo

        June 22, 2019 at 21:11

        In order to be considered for admission to the TFA corps, you must have a bachelor’s degree with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50 and U.S. citizenship, national/legal resident status, or be a DACA recipient.

        Lloyd Down here this city is trying TFA . Have hear about Hialeah Education Academic . Inc , the city hall running by the Chair of member as well the Principal and some more crooked has declare the war to anyone who said something bad about them , they said nobody can stop their tigers refereeing to their lawyers of course , corruption and abuse of power , they are spreading their tentáculos to California, Carlos Alvarez’s it’s meeting people at your state , and given speeches about charters , you don’t want those crooked in the blue stare , I told them California it’s retuning better way no bunch way , it’s a crime to say that CVD is bad and any person or student that said that California it’s better state better stop saying that or will be force to move to California it’s an angry mom that said that the principal it’s always drunk snd bullying the democracy, that women said she got a big business she want to put all the money to support TFA , the things it’s I never was told that everyone who don’t like cheaters will be informed that I’m the most honest person telling the truth about chatters , to many people calling me to do something to protect their children’s I told the Principal he better stop those abuse or someone will stop him , this individual need to be fired and stop hiring people from others country’s those country’s are nothing but dictatorship. Those are Trying TFA .

        The League of Women Voters of Florida is fighting back against charter schools.

        Click the link and read their report and discover what they are doing.

        Then there is Pastors for Children. They started fighting for the public school in Texas and are now spreading to other states after a string of victories in Texas that stopped or slowed up the charter industry there. If Pastors for Children launches a branch of their organization in Florida, then there will be two forces at work in that state fighting the corrupt Corporate Charter School Industry.

        Sun Tzu who wrote “The Art of War” more than 2,000 years ago, wrote, “know your enemies better than you know yourself.”

        To discover the enemies weaknesses we must observe from a place of strength, and anger steals our strength to do that and it blindfolds us.

        You do not have to love them. Just get to know them. Smile. Shake their hands. Then let cold logic without anger guide you to form a plan that will defeat then totally and without remorse.

        Lloyd I’m sorry because I’m been so long with out expose more crimes than Chatters leaders are still doing the reason I stop was that they treated me to the point where I feel insecure because my family had been treated like for example my son was told that I’m going to be kill if I don’t stop complain agains Hiealeah Education Academy. Inc the Mayor city and the Principal are building mansion and running Jaguars with the money that tax-payer want to know where they get from, long history short I made they think that my complain was over but is not over until is over ,now there is an investigation open between FBI/ Colet Papa defense lawyer / Steve Rosie ? My ex- lawyer who backed up for fear and keep the money I had safe for my Children’s if FBI from Miami is doing not what they should Washinton will do a better Job , the Miami state attorney has her hands tied by someone in this state , or she don’t want do what she should, the only person I told her team that I hate children abuse was me I don’t fear them I just want to tell you this city is a taverna of Crocked because if I don’t want to play or exercise on public parks because I syed the city and his charter them it’s time to tell them if they don’t paid me what they owns me the feds maybe could force them to paid me it’s up to the feds ir up to my knowledge it’s time to visit the city hall with a good lawyer and good proves , Lloyd many people are moving from here because greed’s are controlling everything but no me , I don’t exchange mensajes with not many as well I don’t said thanks to only a few one of them is you and God because of God and you I still on my claim , Ernest Hemingway said live it’s easy to a person who got nothing to lose.

        My suggestion is not to confront criminals and con men. That is dangerous. They have no morals and no conscience — just like Criminal #1 in the White House..

        Instead, if you want to do something, see if you can contact Preachers for Children in Texas and ask them what you can do in Florida to help them recruit pastors there to join their organization.

        Twitter – If that Twitter account bothers you, block it. Trump uses Twitter to bully and lie all the time. Anything you read or see on Twitter and Facebook and probably other social media sites cannot be trusted.

        loyd alguna vez has escuchado la palabra revancha ? O has escuchado esta frase que es muy conocida “ La revancha es permitida ?” Lloyd a few years early before my daughter was victim of bullying , discrimination plus verbally abused by a gan member maxi , the same sistem did she same to my son my son also was victim of Fisical , mental and very discriminatory violations . I learned that from a very trusted friend, The attacker’s family was a wealthy and had used their power to corrupt justice . I been waiting for a long time to return home , my daughter who is 18 need me more than ever .

        My wife and I get separated 4 years ago the divorce dissolution signed by a judge last month on the 7 , I get married april 25,1993 . I want to move to another state , something that has caused anxieties and I’m in the middle of a situation where I keep fighting against those wealthy people or I left . Once I was told the constitution was the resulted from braves individuals who chose died for the justices.
        This is not my case because I’m no body and those who died for protect others are braver than me and they born in this country and I born in Cuba bough of my children’s born in USA , I stay in the position where I says my heart it’s in America . That remain me what it read .
        Mr Habsburg said he wanted his heart buried in Hungary to show the affection he held for the country, Austria’s 19th-Century partner in the Austro-Hungarian empire.
        I’m not sure if that can be possible in this era . anyways it’s something beautiful and part of the history I love read and learn .

        Lloyd according to the things I went through I don’t want made a mistake I want to go long or stay close a very difficult situation to chose because it’s not as simple many thinks , one thing I know is I have to made a move . To be honest be in my shoes sound like a novel or movie based in truth history like the movie the insider.

        What to do ? If you where me , you won’t tell me what to do but please , no much to said , Lloyd thanks for everything you have done . I told you the fact and nothing but the sad truth I have never seen something like that before. PTSD is part of this.
        Take care Lloyd!

        Where ever you decide to move, check that area’s voting record to see if the majority of voters vote for Republicans or Democrats.

        First, there’s the US map. You may want to focus on Blue states where there are more Democrats than Republicans.

        Then there is a map for each state showing the counties/districts in each state. To learn the results for each state, scroll to the bottom of the page after you click the link. Then click on each state you are interested in one at a time to discover what areas voted heavily for Trump in each state. There are Democrats and Republicans in every state, and some areas in every state have a majority that voted for Trump and for Republicans.

        Stay away from heavily RED voting counties/districts. I think most of the bullies, trolls and abusers in the US live in Trump voting areas.

        I call this homework. As you do your homework, keep a list of the areas in each state you are interested in.

        Once you have that list, then find out the cost of living in each area to discover the areas that you can afford the cost of living.

        Once you decide where you want to move and live, then you check the crime reports for that city. That way you can avoid areas with high crime rates. Each city will have areas with higher crime rates and lower crime rates.

        Since there are too many cities, I’m proving two links for Seattle and Sacramento. Once you learn how to discover crime rate reports, you can do it again for other cities.

        This year Texas became a minority-majority state. That means Caucasians are now outnumbered by minorities.

        “According to demographic data released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau, 55.2 percent of Texas’ 2011 population was of a race other than non-Hispanic white, making it one of five “minority-majority” states in the nation.”

        And the cities in Texas are liberal compared to rural areas.

        If you click the next link, you will learn where the Republican Party does not rule in Texas: Cities of Fort Worth, Dallas, El Paso, San Antonio, Auston, Houston and the Southern tip of Texas west of and below Corpus Christi. These are the counties/cities that voted in Democrats.

        Just stay away from the RED counties.

        “. It’s unclear how was the autor “ Who said ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’

        The art of war is of vital importance to the state. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.” So begins The Art of War, a meditation on the rules of war that was first published in China. Historians don’t know the exact date of the book’s publication (though they believe it to be in the 4th or 5th century); in fact, they don’t even know who wrote it! Scholars have long believed that The Art of War’s author was a Chinese military leader named Sun Tzu, or Sunzi. Today, however, many people think that there was no Sun Tzu: Instead, they argue, the book is a compilation of generations of Chinese theories and teachings on military strategy. Whether or not Sun Tzu was a real person, it’s clear that “he” was very wise: The Art of War still resonates with readers today.

        Lloyd what difference between the Art of War with the Bible , what a boock !

        Who said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” -Bible, Mark 12:31
        Full quote from the King James Bible: “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”

        Leviticus 19:13 also says, “Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.”

        Matthew 7:12 says, “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.”

        Matthew 19:18-19 adds, “He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, … ”

        Then there is this about obeying mans laws:

        Romans 13:1-7: “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. … ”

        Then there is the “Art of War” by Sun Tzu:

        “a good scholar would not only be knowledgeable in the concepts of an important book like Sun Tzu’s Art of War but also serve as a living example of how that book has helped him or her. It is just as important to be a practitioner of a philosophy book as it is to be a serious student of it. I would argue that both are one and the same.

        “As a student of Sun Tzu’s Art of War, I strive to apply the book each and every day. To me, that’s what being a student of The Art of War is. Due to its practical principles, it’s not limited to a classroom but can be expanded to a way of life. It is too important and useful of a book.”

        “Thus, strategy would be a way of life. Self-control would be a way of life. Leadership would be a way of life. Being thoughtful and patient but at the same time decisive and to act quickly with full force to defend or gain advantage. They are all behaviors that everyone can see whether or not a person is successfully applying the book. And when I say “everyone,” I don’t mean necessarily the general public who would read about it in a newspaper article but would include family members as well. Wisdom, like peace and charity, starts at home …”-
