This is why I posted the photo I did of a 1950’s class for my article on education. See the picture? All white. Pre-Brown v. Board of Education implementation.
Charter schools, as I and many others have argued for years, is not only a return to Plessy v. Ferguson and a repeal of Brown v. Board of Education, they and those who promote them (the oliarchic shadow government of Gates, Walton Family, Broad, et. al.) promise to destroy public education in entirety and this is the point: without a public we cannot grow the essential moral values such as solidarity, diversity appreciation, equitable opportunities and participatory democracy. Why? Simple, they are privatized enclaves of a “pull-out” society and thus they work to vitiate the above values not support them. They represent ‘hand to hand combat’ in an effort to get an education and not a very good one at that.
