REALITY CHECK: Trump’s and Pence’s Unchecked Support for Unregulated, Unaccountable Charter Schools Hurts Students

WASHINGTON - October 04, 2016 -

“Donald Trump and Mike Pence claim charter schools solve every education problem in America. As an educator, I’m not buying that lie. It’s typical Trump: Taking taxpayer money – our children’s money – and sending it to for-profit charter schools. Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine understand that unregulated, unaccountable charter schools hurt our children. Hillary’s clear-eyed vision of an education system for every child makes my choice in November even easier.” - Dominique Vacheresse, High School Educator, Columbus, OH
