Primaries this Tuesday:
Support Bill Perkins (Harlem)
and Velmanette Montgomery (B'klyn)

State Sen. Bill Perkins sees the big picture, including the charter school invasion of Harlem.

Scott's latest post on Perkins opponent Basil Smickle in Tuesday's primary connects some dots to the charter school lobby:

"The charter school lobby has become one of the major threats to public education in this nation and the Perkins/Smickle primary is the epicenter."

He cites other links to charter school support — financial and otherwise — in the forthcoming election, notably this article in the NY Times.

These two need to win, so if they're your people. you got a civic duty on Tuesday.
