How Trump factors into California's charter school wars

 

April 25, 2019



SACRAMENTO — It’s tough being a charter school advocate in California these days. Not only are the schools facing fierce opposition from the Democratic-controlled Legislature, teachers unions and a governor whom their backers spent millions trying to keep out of office, they also have the most politically toxic ally possible in California state politics: President Donald Trump.

It’s particularly frustrating for Democrats like Margaret Fortune, a former adviser to two California governors who now runs a group of charter schools in Sacramento. After years of success at expanding the privately managed schools, Fortune and her allies are facing an uphill battle against a union-backed legislative package that aims to prevent any new charters from opening in the state while tightening the regulation of the more than 1,300 that are already operating.
