Charter schools to get a windfall increase due to Albany snafu last year
Charter schools in the state getting an increase in spending, NYDaily News columnist Juan Gonzalez reported last month as " the result of a legislative screw-up that Albany lawmakers failed to address before they went out of session...," in December. "The hike affects the entire state. That means urban districts, where most charters are located, are being forced to redirect scarce dollars they had earmarked for traditional public schools."
"Let’s be honest: we need a lot more well-off, well-educated white folks with a personal stake in both charter schools and education reform in general if we’re going to take reform to the next level, both politically and operationally.Whitney Tilson, hedge fund manager and major funding angel for the school privatizing Democrats for Education Reform, thinks there’s not enough rich, educated white folks.( Preaprez) click photo to his blog.
