Education Reformer Jeanne Allen Says Baltimore Riots Are A Call For More Charter Schools

A picture of a deleted tweet by Jeanne Allen, founder of the Center for Education Reform:

Clearly Allen is on board with using whatever means necessary to hand over the public schools to her charter entrepreneur pals and sugar daddies.

This tweet sums things up:
