Reply to: Billionaire Eli Broad Takes Public Education Private
Privatization supporters like Mr. Broad may align with a political party but it is simply to further their agenda. It is not traditional public schools that are failing, it is charter schools that have failed to show any difference overall in academic performance compared to traditional public schools. Many charter schools that do perform well often play the system that has been rigged in their favor through political campaign contributions to both parties. These profiteers then use public affairs companies to draft bills that create special laws for charter schools that provide opportunities to defraud public education of our tax revenue through Charter Management Organizations (CMO) which are privately held and outside public scrutiny or accountability. Charter schools were designed to be a vehicle for the wealthy to gain access to revenue streams intended for educating our children and they have been outrageously successful in doing that, to the tune of roughly 2 billion dollars.
