When ed reformers reach their goal of privatizing public schools and we all look at back on this unplanned and reckless policy decision they all made, I hope the academics among them study regional differences in the “choice” movement.

Charter schools aren’t “better” in Ohio than public schools are- increasingly they’re considered worse. They are in fact worse (overall) than the “big 8 urban districts” in this state and the big 8 urban districts in Ohio can’t pull from suburban areas, and charters can.

This is an example of the near-daily local coverage of “choice” in this state:

“Few human beings are more worthless than morally bankrupt politicians who consciously game the system in ways that make learning even more difficult for struggling young students.
Dear Readers: Allow me to introduce you to the people in charge of your Ohio General Assembly.
Today, those people happen to be Republicans. Of the 132 legislators, 88 of them are members of the same party as Gov. John Kasich.
For years, one of the worst-kept secrets in the nation’s public education community was that Ohio was a state where legislators would gladly sell out children in return for sizable campaign contributions from charter schools run by for-profit management firms.”

There will be winners and losers among states and even regions with privatization of public schools. So far it’s looking like the Great Lakes states will end up with worse schools than when this thing started. It’s fascinating to listen to the national ed reform “movement” pretend every state and every city is NY or NJ or DC or New Orleans and the disconnect between listening to the national “movement” and living in an ed reform state like Ohio. Night and day. I wonder when lawmakers in DC will notice. Probably not until it starts to hurt them politically.
