hmmmm...could be circumstantial...who knows...I'm not sure you have all the details (or tried to get them)...trying to find the connection of this post as it relates to a political Blog. (Public School Funds I guess)...sometimes it's not as Black and White as it 'is what it is' maybe... that's why the Express Times didn't touch it, or maybe they don't know....If 'folks'feel comfortable reading an imbalanced Blog post... that's their call...I believe some of your post are not motivated by racial bias but this post is suspect.Basically, he played the race card.
Now that both The Express Times and Morning Call have "touched" this story, and in far more detail than I, perhaps he thinks they are racists, too.
In fact, maybe the NAACP is racist. One thing that neither daily has told you about this charter school application is that it was opposed by Easton NAACP President Bonita Crowe. She appeared in opposition at the school board hearing last week. Though pressured before the meeting to keep silent, she responded, "This ain't no social club."
You see, the NAACP is philosophically opposed to charter schools. As Crowe explained to the school board last week, it drains funds from tight school district budgets. There is no "rigorous oversight," as the Vincent Ford debacle makes abundantly clear. She even worries that charter schools could result in de facto segregation. That seems likely in the Easton experiment.
Though Crowe was cut off before finishing her speech, she provided the rest of it to me. It ends with this paragraph.
"Based on the current realities of the charter school experiment in Pennsylvania, PA NAACP has concluded that the most efficient approach to thoroughly educate our children is to put the public's tax dollars and efforts into supporting and improving the traditional public school settings across the Commonwealth."
