26. Oh thanks!
At the time I wasn't sure if I had tinfoil on about this stuff, but they do seem to be what I feared. They've been oddly busy at work in (big surprise) Milwaukee: /

Heres an interesting story from the Express in Milwaukee, where Education Reform Now (ERN) and Democrats for Education Reform (DFER) have been lobbying big time to grab control of Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS).

In Saturdays Buffalo News, ERN Executive Director Joe Williams forgot to mention that the ERN board is made up of businessmen from hedge fund groups who see charters as a hot cause. These folks work for Hawkshaw Capital, Gotham Capital, SAC Capital and Maverick Capital.

Maybe thats why Andrew Rudnick referred to the Buffalo Public Schools as a big business. This is a billion dollar budget. You need committed, reform-minded folks to be the board of directors.
