Shaming the Devil

Were you offended when Steve Perry called unionized teachers “roaches”? Oh, c’mon. It’s not like he compared you to Satan.

The Big Sleazy: All-Charter “Achievement Districts”

on Sat, 11/07/2015 - 01:44

That's not gumbo you smell. “Achievement Districts” are a trendy scam that hands public schools over to (highly-profitable) charter chains.

Who would fall for such horse puckey? Anybody desperate for a cheap, easy fix.
