Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will require a federal ban on building for-profit charter schools in a significant education policy address to be provided Saturday in South Carolina, a senior project official for the 2020 governmental competitor tells U.S.A. TODAY. Sanders also will pledge to enforce a moratorium on using taxpayer funds on charter school growth in communities if he’s chosen president, a position that the NAACP has actually been promoting. The speech by Sanders comes one day after the 65 th anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision, in which the Supreme Court ruled segregation in public schools to be prohibited. Sanders discussed the case in an op-ed for the Asheville Citizen-Times, also noting that partition in schools is still prominent today. “Our school system can no longer install fences for black and brown kids,” Sanders wrote. In action to Sanders’ position, Amy Wilkins of the National Alliance of Public Charter Schools stated, “Sanders’ call runs out touch– as normal– with what African Americans want.” Sanders is the first major 2020 Democratic candidate to call for a ban on for-profit charters or a moratorium on moneying the expansion of charters.
