Hillary Clinton has, once again, flip-flopped on a key position in a clear effort to pander to the far-Left of the Democratic base. The Denver Post,
A longtime — even early — supporter of the charter-school movement, Clinton in South Carolina the other day “sounded less like a decades-long supporter of charter schools,” according to Politico, and “more like a teachers union president” in critiquing them.
She claimed most charter schools “don’t take the hardest-to-teach kids. And if they do, they don’t keep them.”
The charter school record varies from state to state, and no doubt some schools fit her description. But charters in a number of locales take more of the “hardest-to-teach” kids than regular schools. And anyone here in Colorado who thinks charters habitually boot such students out hasn’t examined the record of charters serving low-income students in Denver — and often doing a better job with them, too.
