Re: Jim Horn piece on CommonDreams

All you will accomplish with this bizarre attempt to enlist Martin Luther King in your anti-charter crusade is provide further evidence of how out of touch you are. Why you set yourselves up that way is beyond me.

Good call, Jim. As a social democrat, Dr. King would definitely oppose the

current, dominant use of the charter school model.

Toward the end of his life he saw the capitalist, for-profit model interfering

with the many reforms

he advocated.

Were he alive today he might be challenging Duncan, Obama, Broad, Gates, etc. to

harness their

"drum major instincts".
