Video: SOS12 - Karran Harper Royal: How [some] African Americans and Civil Rights Leaders Got on the Wrong Side of the Ed Reform Movement

Karran Harper Royal has some story to tell about New Orleans and the ultimate in ed deform. The fact that she was initially won over by the charlatans like Paul Vallas is instructional for all of us: don't give up in anyone. Thus, when you meet some of the arrogant parents from certain charters run by people named Eva. treat them with sunshine and tell them they will one day come back into the fold of real reform.

Karran by the way is a founder of Parents Across America and we used footage of her at the premiere PAA event in our film. I wish we had room to use more. (Here is the 11 minute video I made of that Feb. 2011 event).
