We always knew that when push comes to shove, even socialists, radicals and defenders of big government would support quality education over government education. Now, the wife of Facebook founder Zuckerberg is trying to open up a CHARTER SCHOOL in the belly of the beast, San Fran.
“Dr. Priscilla Chan, wife of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, has been in talks with city and school officials to open a charter or alternative public school in San Francisco for nearly a year, the San Francisco Examiner has learned.
The school, modeled after a private school Chan and her husband opened in East Palo Alto last year called The Primary School, would focus on the health and education of at-risk children from before birth through eighth grade and their parents.
The school would be the first expansion of The Primary School and mark yet another endeavor into The City for the couple, who donated $75 million to the newly renamed Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center in 2015.
Note they have already opened a charter school in East Palo Alto. They understand that education is the way out of poverty. East Palo Alto is a minority community where the children get a union controlled education—not an education to prepare them for the future. Glad to see even Socialists realize government is the enemy—maybe they will check their other views?
