School choice proponents keep changing the narrative.

Have you noticed how supporters of charter schools and
vouchers keep changing the narrative? In the beginning they were to save
children from failing public schools but now that study after study has shown
they don’t produce better education outcomes and often worse, the narrative has
changed to one of competition being good for public schools.
That’s what people do when they have a losing argument, they
change it.
They also can’t tell the truth and that’s charter schools
are here to make people rich and to break the power of teacher unions, to change
teachers from professionals to service workers. Educating children, sure, maybe
but that’s an afterthought for the movement.
And before some of you jump on me and say there are some
excellent charter schools, I agree but you should be outraged by the flim flam
artists and snake oil salesman that have co-opted the industry too. Furthermore you should want voucher schools to
have accountability because if they don’t many will continue to pump through
and dump out kids ill prepared for anything.

What’s their next story going to be?
