The New York Post has an opinion column criticizing the New York Times for picking on Eva Moskowitz’s Success Academy.
You see, the Times can’t stand success. So it must “destroy” these very successful schools.
That explains why the Times wrote about the “got to go” list of children who had to be pushed out.
That explains why the Times published the story and video of the teacher humiliating a first-grader.
You see, as we have seen in the comments on this blog from two readers who defend whatever happens in charters, especially Success Academy, the public schools do the same, only worse.
Whatever charters do that is unsavory, there will always be a public school that did it too.
The only difference between charter schools and public schools, if you listen to the charter advocates, is that they are far, far better than public schools, have higher test scores, and educate exactly the same children (the reason they have so few ELLs is that the charters quickly teach them English, and they have fewer SPED because the charters magically overcome their disabilities).
But fortunately readers of this blog knew this already.
