Is Save Duval Schools worried about whom their pal Gary is inviting over?

Yes, I know what a terrible title. Moving past it, you
should all know that the barbarians are at the gate. Gary Chartrand in a Times
Union article about raising money said he hopes national philanthropic groups will pitch
in, too. He mentioned the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation
and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as ideal targets for added monies.

WHAT!!!! These are the people that are behind the public
education privatization movement. They aren’t here to help improve public
schools they are here to bury public schools. These are the same people Save
Duval Schools and everybody who cares about public education has been fighting
Yeah we need resources but if Race to the Top has taught us
anything, sometimes the cure is worse than the disease. The county should
either say no thanks or make darn sure there are no strings attached.
