    When I go home and process the photos of the people on the front lines, I do actually tear up sometimes. I fear we will lose many battles before the tide is finally turned.

    On the bright side charter teachers have been unionizing and there is the beginning of a parent revolt against the abuses of the worst charter schools. And let me be perfectly clear, some charters are doing a good job. They could do a better job with unionized staffs and Local School Councils.

    I think the day will come when they will return to the public domain. In the meantime we should support teachers and parents working to improve them.
