Charter schools in a squeeze play…Keep an eye on this:

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick offered a major sacrifice on the altar of unity Friday, temporarily shelving his desire to open charter schools across the city while he and a cavalry of union leaders and community activists and Detroit Public Schools Superintendent Connie Calloway get the community to embrace a reinvention of the city’s network of public, private and parochial schools.

I’ve thought for a while that many of the usual suspects loathe charters much more than vouchers, tax credits, etc…because those reforms mostly end up being marginal while charters can really change the entire nature of the system, displace vested interests, etc…
