As you read this, Michelle Rhee is marshaling the troops to march
on for Los Angeles Unified School District students. Because we all know Rhee puts "Students First," right? Here are her public reasons for the march:
- To drive voter registration and turnout for school board and mayoral elections
- To raise awareness of the unequal access to high quality education and the candidates' platforms
- To ask our candidates to listen to our community and commit to strengthening our public education system
There's a subtext in those bullets, trying to influence Los Angeles as it has in Chicago or New York or Atlanta or any metropolitan city: Charter schools will solve the problem.
