    Enjoyed this very much. With 39 years in public schools, I do not accept the blanket slagging, in fact, charter schools have been a lovely vehicle for ‘corporations’ to ease their way into the public schools. Corporations love the bashing of the public schools, it feeds them. Who better to tell us how to run the public schools than Mr. Gates? Ah, we bow again to money.

    Or to the possibility of choice. It would be nice to have one regarding the education of my daughter. Without money, change is much slower in our casino capitalist culture, Kevin. & this was recorded in 1997, YEARS before Mr. Gates was funding Charter School efforts. 1997.
