“The emancipation of the working class will only be achieved by the working class itself.” — Karl Marx

Why were the results hidden?

The study showing that charter schools performed worse than public schools may have been done by Bush's own Education Department – the same Education Department which has been pushing charter schools. But it took teachers poring over data on a website and piecing together information from different places to finally make the report public.

Of course the Bush administration hid the results of the study! It shows what "No Child Left Behind" really means – "No Profit-making Corporation Left Behind," "No Friend of Mine Left Behind," and "No Snake-oil Salesman Left Behind."
