Jersey Jazzman has done his usual spectacular research job and discovered that a new charter operator is poised to enter the Camden “market” of school choice.

It happens to be the same for-profit charter operator who runs the Chester Community Charter School, who happens to be the single biggest campaign contributor to Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett. Since he opened his charter, the Chester public schools have gone bankrupt and been taken over by a state fiscal manager.

For good measure, Jersey Jazzman uncovers the buying of Democratic politicians who agreed to turn their city’s children over to the privatizers.

Privatization is not just a Republican thing. Amazing what campaign contributions can do.

Even more amazing is that it costs less to buy politicians in New Jersey than in Pennsylvania.
