The Rahmney plan for schools
Mitt's approach to education sounds a lot like Mayor Emanuel's


You can read it yourself, if you're up for the challenge. It's called "A Chance for Every Child" and it's only 30-some pages long...Here's the big takeaway for Chicagoans: in many respects, it reads like it could have been written by our very own union-busting, charter-school-loving Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Yes, that's right—Republican Romney and Democrat Rahm are like two peas in a pod when it comes to public education. It's a little ironic given that Romney blames President Obama—Emanuel's former boss at the White House—for everything that's wrong with education today.

Along with teachers' unions, of course.

Let's take it one at a step at a time, starting with the charters, which Romney loves almost as much as the family dog—though I doubt he'd strap a charter school to the roof of the car, even if he could.
