I missed this news in December when it happened, but in EduShyster's spot-on takedown today of the whitest and brightest law firms in Boston, I saw that the Tea Party retread and charterista, James Peyser, is now Sec. of Ed. in MA.
Horace Mann must be rolling in his grave.
Edushyster's explanation of how segregated charter schools became the civil rights tool of our era is priceless.
Here is a link to 2006 when Peyser was bullying schools for Romney, and below is a bio from Peyser's last big gig as bigwig for the charter bundlers at the New Schools Venture Fund.
