These cases..., and this one in particular...are routinely decried on XM Radio's Channel 169 'The Power'' with a demand for change. There is also a standing challenge of 'What are you going to do about?' If we all take similar actions, change will become possible. Just talking about it on site such as this IS NOT ENOUGH!!

This is actually why I asked at first. It wasn't to be condescending in the least. I support Black institutions of just about every form. From childcare/homeschooling to Black research universities. Capitalism and white supremacy are closely related. One need not be "white" to to get caught up in the crazy and devastating effects of capitalism any more than one need be white to suffer from the effect of white supremacist thinking.

The backlash against charter schools is fueled by the pro-union-political-education-complex; a movement that has nothing to do with educating children and more to do with keeping adults employed.

Charter schools have been hijacked by corporate interests and the right, whose plan it was all along to fund the private schools that cropped up all over America, especially in the south, after integration had been made law, which also serves as backdoor way to de-fund public education and privatize education in America.

The only reason I can think of is that it would take a UNIFIED effort on the part of the parents to demand a better educational experience for their children. Even if it was just at the neighborhood or individual school district level. And, unfortunately, as a people, we're just not there yet.

I share this with you because the motivation I have to do this job, was once compromised when I had the unfortunate task of working in a public school where teachers abused sick time, stole supplies earmarked for kids, refused to unpack boxes of new text books because doing so was a violation of the union contract, reported late to school, stood in front of kids...

Interesting. Im not, and don't claim any deep familiarity with the NYC public school system. However, the problems that exist with public education do share some commonalities across the country. I'll be honest, I am a bit cautious and suspicious of the lines of reasoning that places teachers unions as the or even a primary obstacle in lieu of the entire design and interactive functioning of the educational system. This isn't directed at Shango (or anyone) in particular, I note this because...
