Ravitch: Age of Hypocrisy

Ravitch: Actually, it’s an age of hypocrisy and meanness

"In South Carolina, the legislature plans to cut $12 million from funding for physical education and guidance counselors, but managed to find $25 million to fund new charter schools. So, all the children in the state will be less fit so a handful of children can attend privately managed charters. Makes sense, no? Oh, yes, the legislature also found $10 million to pay for a golf tournament. I guess the money isn’t all gone, but priorities have changed."
