Jeb Bush and Charter Schools

The Washington Post has a column here criticizing what it calls Jeb Bush’s distain for public education.  It cites numerous speeches in which he demonizes traditional public schools and teachers’ unions. 

I tend to like traditional public schools because I like having our tax-payer supported schools run by the people paying the taxes, rather than a board or a corporation.  In addition, I don’t find charter schools any better than any other schools when it comes to nurturing a love and habit of reading—which is what translates into advanced reading skills.  In fact, I think charter schools are often worse.
