Class Struggle: Race to the Top

Mr. President: Be the bad guy, start closing schools.

Start closing bad charter schools, Mr. President. The teachers union officials who have long thought charters, most of them not unionized, as the enemy will applaud your squashing those vermin. The pro-charter people will support you too, because they have long argued that the great advantage of charters is that unsuccessful ones can be closed quickly and easily.
