Jersey Jazzman has developed an equation: reform=disrespect.
Another way to put it: these so-called reformers don’t like democracy.
He detects a growing opposition to the top-down methods of the privatizers.
Something is happening in Jersey, and the rest of the country: slowly, a groundswell of opposition is building against the corporate reform agenda. People are starting to resent the idea that a California billionaire like Eli Broad has more influence over the directions of their children’s schools than they do. Paterson and Jersey City are also straining under their state-imposed yoke. Camden is pushing back against plans imposed from outside its borders. Even the ‘burbs have had enough.
