“For me, being a progressive Democrat and a charter school supporter are not antithetical. In fact, the values that inspired me to support Obama, Sanders, and now Hillary Clinton also drive my support for charters…Regardless of whether they exist within district schools, charter schools, or schools of some yet-to-be discovered type, we need more classrooms in which students succeed.” – Commonwealth (7/20/16)

“The anti-reform arguments for more education funding and less accountability just don’t add up. Their argument about poverty is self-defeating: If poverty’s the real problem, why spend more on education? And their argument that we need more funding even though teachers can only do so much feeds a false narrative that undermines the status and value of the profession.” – Education Post (4/22/16)

“I’ve wondered aloud often about what kind of Manchurian groupthink happens in higher education, particularly for students of education, that produces such a marvelously uniform legion of meat puppets seemly incapable of original thought, desperately vacant of an independent vocabulary to explain life.” – Citizen Stewart (1/5/16)
