The troubling prospect that charter schools may be a wormhole to resegregation

A consortium of progressive groups including People for the American Way, Advancement Project, Center for Social Inclusion, and African American Ministers in Action produced a short video just posted to YouTube on how venture capitalists are bringing down a diverse and functioning school district in North Carolina by privatization; further indication that charter schools are not the answer to our problems. Metro Nashville Schools has firmly committed itself to charter schools and has also been under criticism for a redistricting plan that purportedly resegregates Nashville schools. We should be levelheaded about the priorities of venture philanthropy in propping up charter schools in our community.

Please share this video with others, especially with other public school parents.
