A mega-wealthy philanthropist changes his mind about school reform and what kids really need — and Barack Obama has a surprising reaction – The Washington Post

Interesting. Nick Hanauer decides charter schools aren’t the answer and a $15 minimum wage is. (And Obama agrees with him.)

«“There were zero charter schools when I began ‘helping’ our education system. Today, there are over 7,000,” he said. “But our country has never been more unequal, polarized and angry.”»

(This is what happens when you see a long article in The Atlantic and say to yourself, “Oof, I’ll read that later,” and then never get around to it.)
