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.

Thousands of teachers are fired without cause and replaced with temps. The premise is that this strategy produced a “New Orleans Miracle”, in which failing public schools were replaced with phenomenally successful McCharters.

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