From Parents Across America - New Orleans Nightmare

Choice really means: 
"Schools choose [students] and parents and children lose. We really don't have choice."

PAA's Karran Harper Royal at the inaugural PAA event on Monday night share her experiences with the ed deform privatization scheme in New Orleans where choice turns out to be between KIPP and KIPP.

"Charter schools' solution to school improvement is to change our students."
"The principal became a CEO and her salary went from about $80,000 to $250 thousand."

See our future under ed deform, when public schools only exist for students unwanted by charters, in all its glory.
