Well we do have the National Council of Churches:
A Pastoral Letter on Federal Policy in Public Education: An Ecumenical Call for Justice
Which states: *“We are concerned today when we hear the civil right to education being re-defined as the right to school choice.”

*“While competitive, market based “reforms” may increase educational opportunity for a few children, or even for some groups of children, do they introduce more equity or more inequity into the system itself? We reject the language of business for discussing public education.”
See the whole letter @

We also have the January 2012 NCAAP Resolution opposing charter schools as well:

I suggest they read the above documents before they spin any webs of deceit.

Underneath it all is the sinful fact that the kids are not being taught to read well. Nothing can occur without that skill.
