Good for Colbert, But Why Should Public Schools Rely on Charity?

Diane Ravitch's blog

As I reported earlier, Stephen Colbrrt generously funded the request of every teacher in South Carolina through an organization called Donors Choose.

That was indeed laudable.

But it is not so good when schools, teachers, and children must rely on the charity of rich patrons.

Public education is a public responsibilty. When states fail to fund their schools and send their teachers out to beg for help, the state deserves a badge of shame.

Shame on South Carolina.
