Yes, Something Stinks about the State Takeover of the Houston Independent School District

November 19, 2019

Diane Ravitch highlights the points made by three activists in Houston and one astounding piece of legislation passed in Houston that results in the takeover of 283 public schools because ONE of those schools “failed”. An irony in her essay is her use of the Broad award as a defense for keeping the school district out of the hands of the privatizers. Those who follow the “run-schools-like-a-business” crowd recognize Eli Broad as someone who wholeheartedly supports privatization and charters. The idea that his awards are being used by Diane Ravitch to defend the retention of public schools overseen by elected boards must be giving him a bad case of indigestion.
