On Wednesday, 1619 Project creator Nikole Hannah-Jones argued against school choice by advocating for the foundation of school choice.
"Why do 'school choice' advocates never advocate eliminating school district boundaries/funding schools by local property tax and allowing poor, Black students to attend white, wealthy schools in neighboring municipalities? They don't really want choice, just privatization," wrote Hannah-Jones in a tweet.
"Classism is allowing rich white communities to fund just their own schools exclusively and then to keep lower-income folks out through exclusionary zoning and invisible but impenetrable school district boundaries. So, you really want a choice? Let's go," she continued.
