The NAACP-just what are they advancing?

Say it’s not so Joe. According to Atlanta’s Black Star News, despite major push back from pro-charter advocates and Black educators , the National Association for the advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Board moved to uphold a controversial resolution calling for a moratorium on charter schools. Notwithstanding the thriving community of charter schools that has reshaped education by providing a diverse array of educational programs. That the beneficiaries of this rich choice are in part, children of color. Where is the advancement on this one Joe?

Black families approximately (700,000) have chosen to send their children to charter schools.  Hundred of thousands more are waiting in line. One can only wonder if the Old organization is out of touch with families who would be denied educational opportunities for their children.

We do know that teacher’s union have always fought a fierce battle against charter schools and have always supported the NAACP financially. What did you say Joe? You believe financial support from the unions have funded this moratorium. ┬áMe think so too, Joe.
