Ms. Ravitch,

I hope this email finds you and yours happy and healthy this holiday season. Thank you so much for your article, “The Myth of Charter Schools.” It was a welcome antidote to the Superman documentary that we viewed the night before. My wife and I were the only two in the theater and she had to keep me from leaving two or three times during its screening. It reminded me of Nazi Germany’s propaganda films in the 1930’s. I’ve been a Chicago Public School teacher for the last ten years, teaching high school mathematics and I know I speak for many if not all CPS that your words were true and succinct. My only regret is that your article was not picked up by mainstream newspapers so this kind of misinformation could be exposed to the masses.
