Bernie Sanders’ Education Plan Straight out of Union Playbook

Will  Marshall and Emily Langhorne, both employees of the Progressive Policy Institute, debunk some of Bernie Sanders’ myths about public schools in the New York Daily News.  They prove, once again, how much Bernie Sanders wants the teacher union vote.

His plan duly echoes the unions’ litany of self-serving and bogus complaints about charters: that they drain money from public schools (not possible, because charter schools are public schools); that they increase public school segregation (a real problem, but charters are hardly to blame); and, that they represent an insidious bid to “privatize” public schools (also false, because charters are accountable to public institutions and must accept all students, just like traditional public schools).
