The Jacksonville Privatization Education Fund

JPEF will tell you the P stands for public, but their board of directors made up of privatization proponents and their school choice report which said, public schools do better than charters, we have no idea how voucher schools are doing and school choice hurts public schools but "duck it" we need more school choice anyways seem to indicate otherwise.

Well today they re-branded themselves.

Okay it's a bunch of flowery retoric until about the 3:45 minute mark when they seemed to take credit for the rise in the graduation rates. I kitten you not, check it out.

The thought of a non profit working to inform the people of Jacksonville and getting them involved is a laudable and noble effort. Unfortunately the reality of what they are, fronts for privatizers, is a lot different.

Don't believe the hype.
