Maybe I'm confused, but aren't these guys a charter school?
TAF was founded by Trish Millines Dziko, a lesbian and former Microsoftie turned social entrepreneur. I'm having a hard time accepting that she used her non-profit to setup a charter school to convert children into Christians as part of a Republican plot to privatize education. I guess there might be a black LGBT religious conservative Republican who would want poor kids of color to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math. But wouldn't the appearance of such a chimera coincide with other unexplained phenomenon like hell freezing over and pigs with angel wings soaring overhead?
We all know Republicans have fetishized privatization and public education has been in their cross-hairs for years. Nonetheless, everyone who is interested in charter schools is not a Republican, Christian, or wants to dismantle public education. Saying that kind of stuff seems more like a scare tactic to keep anyone from talking about it for fear they get slimed... a way to shame people into maintaining the status quo even though everyone openly acknowledges it is broken. That doesn't sound very democratic or liberal to my ears. That sound more like the kind of tactics conservatives typically use to win their arguments.
