I’m shocked….shocked, that the teachers’ unions in Ohio are working with the AG there against charter schools. Actually, not so much. Perhaps I’m tone deaf on Ohio politics but while people keep emailing me this Columbus Dispatch story and also this AP one outlining the collaboration, what’s the big surprise here? This stuff will come back to haunt Democrats, especially with minority voters, but that’s a longer time horizon story.
That said, there are some really lousy charter schools in Ohio, but the teachers’ unions there are against all of them, lousy or good. And that’s too bad because there are ways to boost quality and provide more options for students and parents.
