Good Morning

Let’s follow some money—teachers’ union money. Have you wondered why opposition to charter schools moved to the top of the NAACP’s agenda? Dropout Nation documents the American Federation of Teachers 2016-2017 financial disclosure showing the civil rights organization received $155,000 from the LFT. The union contributed $15,000 to National Association of Black Journalists. Now I understand why an education town hall held in New Orleans during the organization’s national convention was essentially a one-sided anti-school choice town hall.

Have a great day. – Paul
