The charter house rules

New York Post: "In a normal universe, snubbing nine out of 10 voters wouldn’t be a path to victory. But New York is no normal universe. It’s a place where an endorsement from the teachers union trumps the popular will — which explains why three of the five top Democratic candidates for mayor are running away from charter schools.

Their latest run was a real profile in courage. It came Tuesday at a forum sponsored by Families for Excellent Schools and other charter advocates. Ex-city Comptroller Bill Thompson and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio had agreed to attend. But organizers say the two backed out at the last minute after learning they’d have to own up to their anti-charter positions before the crowd."

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
