Surprise. The geniuses in Raleigh are willing to punt $400m. in federal money rather than lift the arbitrary and capricious 100 school cap on charters in the state.

Will Bev Perdue have the guts to call a special session to lift the cap? You tell me.

The truly fascinating thing is that those already in the state’s artificial charter school cartel, like Richard Vinroot and Sugar Creek Charter, want to blow up their market advantage and waiting lists and create more competition for themselves.

Who takes the exact opposite stance? The supposed professional educators at government-run schools and the candidates they bankroll.
