Why Is Progressive Hero Bill de Blasio Throwing Charter Schools Out of New York City?

Success Academy shares space with public schools in the same building, and New York’s mayor is willing to fight his own party to kick them out.
Stupid is as stupid does.

Wouldn’t we all like to start a chain of schools, bakeries, retail stores etc. and have the taxpayers pay for them while we get to have ownership and keep all the profits?
I’m convinced that the average citizen is not aware of this shameful hustle. Please write to your representative to stop the privatization of our schools.
Public schools belong to the public.
It goes without saying that Dr. Conor is a Teach For America alum, 80% of them who are out of the classroom by the end of their 4th year of teaching.
