First let me say in my opinion the Times Union should be a little ashamed of their Classical Charter school editorial, it read like a paid advertisement and I think instead of basking in the glow of ambassador Rood we started to ask tough questions.

That’s a lot but there is more, Hilsdale College who provides the curriculum, recently put out a poll espousing the dangers of socialism.

Um, I have questions about what they are going to teach and who are they going to take or exclude..
Finally and it’s been a minute, but a while back I got a tip about a sweetheart deal for the property which included the city cleaning it up because it was contaminated.
Shouldn’t we ask the questions? Give people all the facts? Once again I would check the bank account of whoever wrote that Editorial, because none of above was mentioned and it’s all relevant.
