Every controversy in American life becomes a lawsuit, and the case of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s assault on charter schools now joins the ranks. I like the language the charter school parents are using: “’For this to be the land of milk and honey, this is America, you have to beg for a good education? That’s a shame,’ one parent said.”
This is a moral issue and a highly emotionally resonant one at that. Most Democrats are on the wrong side. Other Democrats are beginning to understand this (e.g. Andrew Cuomo). My column on how this would look if de Blasio were a Republican is here.
