Corporate Consortium Primes for Takeover of City Schools
A surprisingly balanced editorial from the York Dispatch recently stated a systemic change is in order for York City schools. YorkCounts, York County’s foremost promoters of regionalism and government consolidation, has issued a recommendation that all city schools be ‘reformed’ into charters.
First of all, it’s important to point out that the YorkCounts report and recommendations are not based on a local focus or even particularly tailored to local issues. The YorkCounts report is nothing more than a national template that is currently sweeping the nation. What’s driving this sweeping movement? You’ve probably already guessed it; money, opportunism, and government. That train’s never late.
