On Education, Barack Obama is the President of Privatization. Can We Stop Him? Will We?

by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

By the time his term is over, President Obama and his Race To The Top program will have forced the closure and privatization of thousands of inner-city schools, a feat no white Republican or Democrat could have accomplished.
