Report from the Field: Is Harlem Success Academy Postponing the Opening of School Tomorrow to Make Political Use of the Children and Parents?

Why are charters rallying to demand that other children's schools close? How does the closing help them?
-----Diane Ravitch

HSA is taking the morning off from school until 10am tomorrow to use their kids as political pawns at the state office building.  Whose needs is Eva Moskowitz serving now?  What do the children already enrolled at HSA get out of this?

Eva Moskowitz is the only person who will gain from this tomorrow.  She is using children to open more schools and make more money for herself.

“We never miss school,” said a teacher at Success Charter school who contacted GothamSchools about the rally. “It could almost be a blizzard outside and we still come to school so the fact that we are getting a delay on Thursday is a big deal here.”

"HSA 1 will not open until 10 a.m. Thursday, allowing students to attend the rally with their parents, the flyer says. “Bring your scholar to the rally,” the flyer reads, later saying, “Parents need to take children back to school after the rally. We know it’s hard, but we want all children to be safe.”
