Is it possible these young spokespersons for Freedom Works just haven't a clue? Whitney Neal  evidently really felt that there would be no tax-funding (federal control) of charter schools. What planet has she been living on?

See this post: "Education Freedom: An Update," by Whitney Neal, 5/12/14. The article explains that

The U.S. House of Representatives Pass Charter School Bill As ABC News reported4, the House passed H.R. 10, the Success and Opportunity through Quality Charter Schools Act, on Friday.

Here is what Whitney, a leading spokesperson on education for Freedom Works, has to say regarding charter schools:

"This is exceptionally frustrating. As a passionate supporter of school choice, I find it odd that anyone examining the Department of Education finds it smart to expand their role in and federal influence on Charter Schools and state based choice programs.
"The school choice movement works to expand parental options and free local communities from the confines of federal mandates and intervention into local classrooms. Several provisions of this act expand federal oversight of charter schools rather than leave the programs up to state and local accountability measures. Good intentions gone wrong."
