Crass “Reformer” Calls for More Charter Schools as Solution in Baltimore

April 29, 2015

The unrest in Baltimore that resulted from the death of Freddie Gray has elicited responses from many different perspectives, but none to date has been more tone deaf than that of “reformer” Jeanne Allen. In a tweet she later deleted, Ms. Allen wrote: ed-deform-tweetAs the Perdido Street School blog noted, Ms. Allen is a long time supporter of privatization, one who is eager to take millions of dollars from tax coffers and augment them with funds from philanthropists who seek the complete privatization of public schools.

I got to this post through Naked Capitalism blogger Lambert Strether who drily commented:
