Elizabeth Warren vows to end federal funding for new charter schools
Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has announced an education proposal pledging to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on public schools while ending all federal funding to create new charter schools.
Warren also promised to revive the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights to better combat discrimination in public schools.
And she said that as president she would ensure public funding went only to public schools.
She said she also would halt any federal funding for new charter schools while banning for-profit charter schools and requiring existing charter schools meet accountability rules currently required of traditional public schools.
Midwestern moderates Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar are making a strong case against the liberalism of Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
