No wonder the kiddos were out in such force! The week before was National Charter Schools Week. Silly.

George says:

Because they are not bound by many regulatory requirements, charter schools have the flexibility to innovate in ways that will best meet students’ academic needs.

Yes. Innovations. Some of these innovations include the ability to cart kids down to the statehouse and use them as political pawns. It also apparently includes – if I’m hearing right – assigning letter writing campaigns to kids as homework. Letters that, uh…support “school choice” of course!

I’d really like to see proof of all these results charters schools are supposedly getting. All I hear is the opposite. Won’t be the first time GWB lied through his teeth.

This week we thank educational entrepreneurs for supporting charter schools, and we honor all those involved in charter schools for helping their students reach high expectations.

Translation: I hope the likes of David Brennan with White Hat Management continue to make a killing so they can contribute to Republicans with dollars that shoulda gone to traditional public education. This racket rocks!
