Most of these “reform” education organizations are in it to make money. Period. They dress it up, they make inspirational movies about “choice”, they talk about “the children,” but it pretty much comes down to the basic conservative philosophy: Take a public institution, privatize it, strip it of assets and turn it into a cash cow for investors. It’s not about quality, and it’s not complicated.

Because today, if its “conservative” its a “con.”
