NAACP abandons poor kids

Aug 25, 2016 by

Nolan Finley –

Education is the great civil rights issue of the 21st century. And yet the nation’s largest civil rights group is seeking to deny poor and minority children access to quality schools.

Its resolution demanding a moratorium on privately run charter schools exposes the NAACP as more concerned with protecting Big Labor’s monopoly on public education dollars and its own political influence over school operations than it is in making sure disadvantaged students of all races have the same access to a decent education as their more affluent peers.

The NAACP resolution, adopted at its annual convention last month, claims that charters have contributed to the segregation of schools and have weak oversight that puts children at risk, and their expansion “mirror practices that led to the sub-prime mortgage disaster.”
