What Oprah didn’t say yesterday

Sabrina Stevens Shupe, our ally and panelist on the recent media bias forum, has beat us to the punch in writing a great post about the dog-and-pony show on charter schools on Oprah’s show yesterday.

One thing Oprah didn’t mention was that DSST’s model is to take no more than 45% of low-income kids, or those receiving free or reduced lunch subsidies.   But aren’t charter schools supposed to be the silver bullet (don’t answer that…we were being facetious).

Read Sabrina’s post here, then come back and discuss.
