At a meeting in New Hampshire, Bernie Sanders said the following:
“I’m not in favor of privately run charter schools. If we are going to have a strong democracy and be competitive globally, we need the best educated people in the world. I believe in public education; I went to public schools my whole life, so I think rather than give tax breaks to billionaires, I think we invest in teachers and we invest in public education. I really do.” – Bernie Sanders (Quote begins at 1:48:32)
That is: go to one hour and forty-eight minutes on the video to hear his quote.
Will Hillary Clinton pledge to oppose the privatization and destruction of our nation’s public schools?
