Diane Ravitch's Network for Public Education (NPE) recently published a position statement on charter schools that directly challenges her widely-heralded commitment to quality public schools for all children who choose them.

NPE's new statement on charter schools explicitly acknowledges that Ravitch and her corporate union patrons support the continued operation of the nation’s 7,500 segregated charter schools, now draining away billions of public dollars each year for the principal benefit of racist corporate colonizers in urban communities (my bolds):

It is also true that some charter schools are successful. We do not, therefore, call for the immediate closure of all charter schools, but rather we advocate for their eventual absorption into the public school system. We look forward to the day when charter schools are governed not by private boards, but by those elected by the community, at the district, city or county level.
