Charter schools compared to the “plague” in protest against KIPP charter school in East LA
In the quarter-century since the first charter school was established in Minnesota to present-day East Los Angeles, we have heard many fanciful and extraordinary hyperbole directed at charter schools. But comparing charters to the play ranks as a doozy. In a protest against a proposed KIPP school, organizers found some parents they were obviously able to easily fool into believing that their propaganda. It really is sad how far opponents of charters will go in their rhetoric in order to stop any competition, even when the local district schools fail to educate so many kids.
