Last weekend the California Democratic Party passed a resolution that forthrightly criticized corporate education reform, including high-stakes testing and privatization. The resolution specifically singled out Michelle Rhee’s StudentsFirst and the Wall Street hedge fund managers’ Democrats for Education Reform as organizations that are fronts for corporate interests and Republicans.

But this upset the Los Angeles Times editorial board, which is known for its contempt for teachers’ unions. The Times apparently thinks that giving public funds to entrepreneurs, corporations, and hustlers with no oversight or accountability is “school reform.”

They neglected to mention that most of the candidates supported by StudentsFirst are Republicans, not Democrats.
