    I have a feeling that Texas State Rep. Garnet Coleman would be opposed to charters and every other kind of educational freedom (including home education).

    When the Legislature considered an education bill recently, Texans expected their elected officials to make our schoolchildren, their families and their teachers our top priority. Unfortunately, the plan that narrowly passed the Texas House turned a deaf ear to the best advice Texans had to offer. Instead, House leaders forced passage of a House Bill 2 plan that was lifted, almost verbatim, from a report issued by the Koret Task Force, a product of a right-wing California think tank.

    …Yates High School is a historic anchor of the Third Ward community. It belongs to us, not profiteers.

    Coleman must love that “profiteer” sobriquet, as he employs it many times throughout his piece.

    And, yes, Coleman is a Democrat. Shocking, ain’t it?

    “CALIFORNIA?!?!?!? Why we got a educashun thank tank right behahnd the Pace peecawntee fak-tree”

    I love these accusatory articles against charters coming from the educrats. “Where will the money go?” Indeed. Better yet, explain how they will profit all those millions on only 10% of the schools with less of a budget than YOU ARE CURRENTLY USING. I say, give ’em all the rope they want. These arguments will draw enough attention to hang them one day.
