Finally! @HillaryClinton: Most charter schools don’t take hardest-to-teach kids or if they do they don’t keep them https://t.co/bdig2DJgeZ

Don't see too many people on social media buying Clinton's comments about charter schools as anything other than expediency.
@Jeff_Bernstein Shows just how much has changed about charter narrative that she felt the need to say this.

Make no mistake, the charter scandals from around the country, the "Got To Go" list pushout stories from NYC, the stories of abuse at charter chains like Success and Achievement First - these are doing serious damage to the charter narrative.
That Clinton's saying what she's saying doesn't mean she'll change the pro-charter policies from the Obama and Clinton administrations, of course.
Just that it's no longer a slam dunk talking point to declare charters the swellest thing ever.
