Wonderful quote from a review about a book promoting Rocketship charter schools:
“I have a few questions and a challenge for Danner, his wealthy education ‘reform’ compatriots and their unquestioning supporters like Whitmire:
“1. Would you send your own children to Rocketship (or KIPP, ASPIRE, YES Prep, Success Academy, etc.)?
“2. Would you recommend such schools to your other elite and wealthy friends?
“3. Do you plan to hire graduates of such schools for your own companies?
“Challenge: If you really care about poor students of color, why don’t you work to make their schools look more like the schools you send your own children to?”
