There is still time for you to tune in at 3 pm EST to hear Joe Nathan and Howard Fuller discuss political strategy to promote charter schools and privatization.

Nathan is a week-known Charter advocate.

Fuller is a well-known voucher advocate. His defunct organization, Black Alliance for Educational Options, received millions of dollars annually from pro-voucher, pro-charter groups. In its last year, it had revenues of $8.5 million. Fuller relied on the Rightwing Bradley Foundation to launch him into national activism for vouchers and privatization. Read Mercedes Schneider on BAEO, it’s association with Betsy DeVos’s AMERICAN Federation for Children, and its persistent efforts to privatize public schools.

Nathan and Fuller will share their concern about the “well-funded” efforts to stop charter schools and privatization.

I hope they will let listeners know where to find the funding to stop privatization. I’d like to raise some money for the Network for Public Education, which is not “well funded.”

Do you think they will mention the hundreds of millions of dollars spent every year by the Waltons, Eli Broad, Bill Gates, John Arnold, the Koch brothers, the DeVos family, Reed Hastings, Michael Bloomberg, Paul Singer, Dan Loeb, and other billionaires, as well as the U.S. Department of Education, to fund charter schools?

If ever there was a well-funded industry, it is the charter industry.

If ever there was an underfunded opposition, it is those who fight to protect their public schools against the charter vultures.
