Blatant Discrimination

The Department of Education has not yet granted charters extra transportation money to cover Metrocards for kids in the Eva Moskowitz School (or other charters). They're using the flimsy excuse that since they start the school year earlier than public schools, they can't have extra funds.

Frankly, that's poppycock. If they were treating charters the same as public schools, why did billionaire Courtney Ross get a state-of-the-art facility while most city kids are just as liable to learn in bathrooms, closets, or hallways? Why isn't Mistress Eva's school in a buiding at 250% capacity, like mine?

And come to think of it, why isn't NYC Deputy Chancellor Alonso up on his hind legs screaming "no excuses," and demanding Mistress Eva get in her Range Rover and drive the kids to school herself?
