    Because Burke wasn't operating on the "Oh, charter schools that's a chic idea, that's the wave of the future, let's take the established interests (teachers) and promote this new era of education" part of the party that folks like Booker are in. Her position was mainly that, on a point by point basis was a good idea and, combined with the local programs in the education system, would help minority and low income students. She didn't argue that it was the only solution or a catch-all solution. I swear some leftists are irritating. Just like charter schools shouldn't be promoted just because they're charter schools, they also shouldn't be attacked just because they are charter schools.
