The Refrain

It is never a slow news day in New Orleans.

Liprap ties together this week's list of grievances, and points us to G-Bitch's dismantling of the way "school choice" was imposed on New Orleans.

In the past 40 years, dozens of things could have been done to improve schools. But only privatization got approval. Few people question why private industry is so hot to get its hands on federal education dollars. Millions and millions of dollars.
Wait.

You know, I rarely straight up repeat something on this site. But that one is important enough.

Yep.

And like I used to say when playing rock & roll, ONE MORE TIME:
