Bernie Sanders’ Thurgood Marshall Plan for K-12 Education


When I introduced Senator Sanders (virtually) at the UTLA Leadership Conference, I said that his K-12 education plan was the best one that any candidate had put forward.
Senator Sanders focuses on federal action to:
1. Reduce segregation.
2. Dramatically improve federal funding for the schools that enroll the neediest students.
3. Endorsed the NAACP call to ban for-profit charters and to implement a moratorium on public funding of private charter schools until charters become fully accountable and do no fiscal harm to public schools.
I have not endorsed any candidate. However, I would like to see every candidate spell out their K-12 education plan, as Senator Sanders has done.
To my knowledge, neither Senator Warren nor Senator Harris has released a plan for K-12 education. I will review them when and if they do.
