Sanders Now Supports Charter Schools??

If there is one thing that could cut off my minor trickle of contributions to the Sanders campaign, it would be his support of the segregative and punitive corporate charter schools that now threaten the future of humane and sane public education.

Obviously, the Sanders people must clarify what sounds to be (at 1:10 on the audio) an endorsement of the No Excuses chain gangs:


  1. Until we actually have a savvy anti-testing, pro-public TRUE socialist running for President, we've got our work cut out for us in educating our leaders...

  2. He says he supports public charter schools, not private ones. I guess that would at least get rid of KIPP, right?

  3. Yes, KIPP, like the vast majority of charters, are corporations with rubber stamp boards appointed by CEOs.
