"Being a black leader in public education has its challenges. For those leading or teaching in charter schools, it’s doubled. They are constantly reminded that they have a target on their backs drawn by a dedicated mix of ideological citizens, school district leaders, unionists, and union sympathizers who pray daily for the failure and demise of charter schools and those who run them.
You’ll know these antagonists when you see “save,” “reclaim,” “defend,” or “protect” before “our public schools” in their mission statement. These are the nastiest people in education. Their singular focus in life is to amplify any study, report, or article that proves charter schools are worst than measles.
Frankly, there are cults I trust more."
