A bunch of very rich people who hate democracy have apparently bought enough signatures to put yet another charter schools initiative on the ballot, because at a time when the state Supreme Court has ruled that we are spending billions less on K-12 education than the constitution mandates, our priority in education reform should be to distract the public with FREE MARKET. Or something.

So yeah, backers of Initiative 1241 have informed the Secretary of State's office that they will be dropping off petitions on Friday. Hope they choke on them.
