Busing to Achieve Apartheid Schools

The oligarchs running the bogus Education Equality Project paid for 70 buses to bring busloads of hornswoggled poor people to Washington, DC to watch Arne's over-the-hill gang promote segregation via charter school, all the while advocating for equality on a day marked to remember the now-esiscerated Brown v Board of Education decision.

Here's a clip from today's Washington Post with a quote from the brains of the bunch, Newt Gingrich:
"I know it's possible to educate every child from every background," Gingrich said to loud applause from the largely African American crowd that had come to Washington in 70 buses from 22 cities. "We're not telling you what the answer is. But we're telling you to keep changing until you find a solution."
Anything to avoid the real problem of poverty, he thought.
