Say anything nice about charter schools, and you are sure to get letters full of rage, false charges and praise for unions. The attacks, often from teachers, follow a format that appears to be scripted by labor bosses and echo the class-warfare bile of Mayor de Blasio.
To wit, charters succeed because they weed out problem students, they discriminate against those with disabilities, and their operators, especially Eva Moskowitz, got special favors from the previous mayor.
Ergo, everything charters achieve is suspect and their methods won’t work on a broad scale.
“Charter schools claim to educate students with disabilities but those disabilities are mild, while the public schools are serving every child,” reads a letter from one misguided fourth-grade teacher.
