Re: “Charter Schools: UA sets discussion

1. Clearly this event offers more than just the voice for school choice. Had Mr. Brantley read his own post, he might have noticed the part after Fuller, "and Chris Heller, attorney for the Little Rock School District, who's arguing before federal courts that the state of Arkansas has abandoned its promise not to promote segregation in Pulaski County by encouraging establishment of open-enrollment charter schools." Obviously attendees can expect to see more than just a Louis Vuitton piece of luggage. Perhaps Prada or Santiago Gonzalez, and then those attendees can decide for themselves which piece of luggage the Department of Education Reform is carrying that night.

2. Diane, according to her own schedule, doesn't put much emphasis on the central United States so I don't have much faith that the right dollar amount would even get her here. Also according to comments made by Ravitch and her lawyer, David Blasband, she admitted to accepting about $67,000 for eight union-supported events. At that rate, the University of Arkansas can expect to pay her over $8,000 for an hour and half lecture. However, why spend the money to bring in Ravitch when you can watch hours of her on You Tube and you can bring in other more worthy experts such as Karthik Muralidharan for virtually no money at all!

3. Not everyone in the U of a Department of Education is an advocate of charter schools.
