Biden Or Bloomberg For President? Neither One
It increasingly looks like the Democratic center will be between Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg and if the moderate wing of the Democratic party wins out from the progressives, the question is who would I vote for, assuming that moderates Buttgieg or Klobuchar do not get the Democratic nomination?
Despite some people (Randi Wiengarten) who believe Joe Biden has mended his ways and is pro public schools I don't believe him. He was instrumental in supporting Barack Obama's pro charter school agenda that also blamed teachers for student growth using "junk Science"as his vice President. Moreover, he still supports public charter schools. Finally, he was a strong advocate of all charter schools back as a U.S. Senator Here. While some naive people believe that Joe Biden has changed his ways, I don't and he will not get my vote for President.
Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire and education deformer darling is unapologetic for his past and present support of charter schools. He has shown contempt for teachers, parents, and schools by under funding public schools and using existing school buildings for new charter schools. He is a disaster for public education in New York City and was responsible for closing 156 schools, despite community opposition.. I'd rather vote for Donald Trump, who's education agenda has been ineffective as long as the Democrats still hold the House of Representatives than Michael Bloomberg,
If either Joe Biden or Michael Bloomberg become the Presidential candidate, neither one will get my vote.
