    The guy was thoroughly debunked in the first comment to the article.

    Charter schools are central to president Obama's education strategy. In NYC Mayor Del Blasio is going forward with 36 new charter schools next year including 5 new Success Academies, expanding the scholastic say of ms Moskowitz. . Yet the right construes this as a war on charter schools. It isn't, not even close.Ms Moskowitz is an experienced political infighter used to getting her own way and making a lot of noise in the right wing media if she doesn't. As a crony of Mayor Bloomberg she got used to special treatment from the city. Perhaps this special treatment was warranted based on the performance of her students, perhaps it wasn't based on the number of low performing and special needs students expelled from her classrooms and her testing metrics.
    Those classrooms are being paid for by the public and charters need to carry their own weight if they expect to be judged by the same measures. Why profitable corporations with highly paid administrators expect free rent is beyond me. But when that free ride puts the credit rating of the school district at risk the freebies, high salaries paid with taxpayer funds, and special treatment must stop. Ms Moskowitz pays herself a salary that is higher than the President of the United States. Perhaps some of those funds should be freed up to pay for the classrooms her students need. Because you know, it's for the children.

    During my time on the SB I met a lot of folks like you - as long as their child was deemed exceptional the
    schools must be doing everything right. A lot of those same kids are now asking "do you want fries with
    that?'

    Thomas Sowell has written some really good stuff - if you followed his history & his writings you might be
    just a whole lot smarter on more subjects than you believe you are . But it only works if you go in with
    an open mind, which is probably a fairly tough sell in your case.

    Buzzy....before you discount what this 'guy' said, you might take 3 minutes to investigate who he is as he has more ligitimate credibility than Obama and all of his administration. And more importantly you should further investigate, what the facts really are!

    I found it of interest that you failed to note where you got your information from.....

    You mean the guy who said:

    Perhaps people who are busy gushing over the Obama cult today might do well to stop and think about what it would mean for their granddaughters to live under sharia law.
    Figures you'd "gush" over his "credibility."

    Never good to let them suffer. Best to end it quickly.

    I thought he truly accomplished something by inserting both of his feet in his mouth.
