Re: “Charter schools opponent to become a supporter?” (Peter Callaghan column, 3-28).
A word to Callaghan: Charter schools are a scam, another scheme by business to get its greedy mitts into the public treasury and destroy public education.
The only reason the charter school ballot measure barely got a majority was because the Washington Education Association and the state Democratic Party were lazy and failed to run a competent campaign. Nothing new there, of course.
Callaghan admits he voted for this terrible idea even though a large majority of his fellow Tacomans voted against it.
Well, he can just add it to his admitted vote for Dale Washam. As I recall his rationale and reasons were about the same.
