During the annual NAACP convention in Cincinnati, the delegates stood up to the charter school lobby and the billionaires that support it. Delegates passed a resolution to put a moratorium on the expansion of privately managed charter schools. They also passed resolutions against the excessive disciplinary practices, waste, fraud, and sorting and selecting of students in admissions associated with charters.

As expected, corporate reformers were outraged, with some individuals attacking the organization ‘as out of touch’ and worse. No doubt the leadership will be under enormous pressure to undo the resolutions in the fall.
