NAACP to Hold New York City Hearing on Charter Schools, Though It’s Not Clear What New Information it Expects to Learn
It’s baffling why the NAACP is hosting hearings to seek to learn about charter schools and their impact on public education. The issue has already been studied fairly widely. These hearings are really just a façade. If the NAACP really wants to know whether charter schools are working for African-American and Latino students, they should just ask the many thousands of parents who are on waiting lists around the country. The fact is the NAACP is simply carrying water for the teachers’ unions who are hell-bent on preserving their power and influence.
