      Is that a chain charter school? I wouldn't be surprised if it is that Romney supports it and makes money from it ... In MA he increased the number of charter schools from 46 to 59 in 4 years. He vetoed a bill to put a moratorium on new charter school.

      Change the world. Ask questions.

      •  It's a day care center chain (0+ / 0-)

        Bright Horizons mainly runs day care centers, often near or at work places ("employer solutions").  Bain Capital apparently owns it, taking them private in 2008.  They also own a few charter schools, but not in Massachusetts.

      •  Obama loves charters too... (0+ / 0-)

        ...there are many reasons to vote for President Obama, but education policy is not one of them....

        If you get right down to it, Obama and Romney have very similar education philosophies...so tell me why would a teacher be interested in working hard to re-elect the Prez?
        In my mind, if the President does poorly on election day, he should look at his RttT program and the fact that he threw teachers under the bus...thereby suppressing a huge number of activists who would readily work hard for him, in particular activating the ground game...instead he opted to hob knob with the likes of Gates and his corporate allies, instead of those who are on the front lines of American public education.

        Educational experience based on non-consensual behaviorism is authoritarian mind control.
