    It is “politics as usual,” not truth and fair-play, Irene. You are not willing to sell-out, so the money is blocked…Political Planned Obsolescence.

    Are certain charters for sale? Are connected, imported, lawyered-up, ivy league chtr bluffers/$uit gang$ painting rotten walls, playing uniform dress up, expunging, spreading huge bucks, whitewashing, fudging, firing, flying under the radar…? Is anyone checking statutes, objecting, visiting, interviewing teachers and/or OPRAing? Charter=Public! Who can trust $$$ gang’s rationales or future results? Change? What a $$$ con job! It seems that kids, parents and non-union teachers are paying for slick Politics as Usual.
