Charter Schools claim not to be public

May 15, 2009 am31 6:33 am

A charter school operator in Illinois filed court papers, claiming not to be public.

When teachers at three of Civitas’ charters tried to organize, the operator went to court, claiming that these are not public schools, in order to fall under a different, more employee-hostile, set of labor laws.

So much for those who feigned outrage when I challenged the “charter = public” disinformation earlier this year.

Hat tip to Mike Klonsky.
