Good School News!

Finding good California school new is suddenly brighter — The Los Angeles School Board election threw out the pro-union president, and the pro school choice group is now in the majority. The coup was made possible by a large ($7 million) donation by the Democrat founder of NETFLIX.
(As I have noted before, school reform is headed by Democrats, because union force fields are raised against Republicans.)

The teacher unions control Sacramento, and the unions responded with a bill that would put local school districts in control of all Charter schools, SB 808, but the Democrats in control represent many poor students who would be harmed so that bill is being slow rolled to death.

In other good news, the current National Teacher of the year is, for the first time from a Charter School (Yea!), but her home state Teacher Association (Massachusetts), voted down a congratulatory announcement (Boo!).
