Governor Tom Corbett wants charter “reform.” He is trying to persuade the state legislature to allow him to create a commission that could authorize charter schools over the opposition of local school boards.
As a Pennsylvania blogger says, this puts the fox in charge of the henhouse.
This is ALEC model legislation. It’s on the ballot in Georgia next month, where ALEC allies hope to eliminate local control.
This is not conservative. It is radical. Since when do conservatives destroy local control to advance the monied interests?
