From the Sun Sentinel: The Broward School Board overwhelmingly rejected a $3.3 million state grant on Tuesday to recruit successful charter-school companies to save their failing counterparts in the district.
So here is Broward County pushing back against charter schools, of which over 270 have taken public money and failed leaving families and communities in a lurch, while Duval is embracing them.
Charter schools many of which are for profit also as a group under perform when compared to public schools. In fact the promise of charter schools has been co-opted by mercenaries and real estate tycoons.
Why would we be excepting money to help them expand? Oh that's right Chartrand wants us to and we all know who really runs our district.
We desperately need people in place who will fight back against this privatization and it's obvious Superintendent Vitti is not that guy because he cannot serve two masters, he cannot both serve public schools and Chartrand and the privatization movement.
