Plus, it speaks volumes that IDEA and KIPP have to circumvent the popular vote by working closely with the neoliberal Betsy DeVos to secure their largest grant ever, overriding public, open, deliberative processes to get this done. Moreover, according to this recent report dated March 20, 2019, they're also circumenting trends related to a slowing of charter school growth!
Por favor, mi gente...this is a money grab. A power grab. A corporate grab. A land grab. Accumulation by dispossession.
To educate yourself further, please read this massively important document titled, "Increase the Transparency and Efficiency of Charter Schools in Texas," that many of Texas' state-level organizations signed onto that tell the awful truths about charter schools and their undue impact on public schools.
Why would we ever support an agenda to eliminate structures about which we have a vote?
