President Trump writes today in USA Today that:
The truth is that the centrist Democratic Party is dead. The new Democrats are radical socialists who want to model America’s economy after Venezuela.
What’s going to make the country economically like Venezuela – and a lot of other countries around the world – is a vanishing middle class, stagnant social mobility, and a secessionist upper class that lives walled off, literally, from its fellow citizens. A key piece of that puzzle, though not the only one, is schools and how educational opportunity is distributed.
Chad Aldeman pines for stories like this.

Around here we used to talk about the education love that couldn’t speak its name in Dem circles. Was reminded of that when reading this, it makes me like Beto O’Rourke more but I suspect it may make some of education’s anti-charter jihadis like him less. By the way, this ad against O’Rourke’s opponent is hilarious.
