Our school system can no longer put up fences for black and brown children, - Bernie Sanders

Politics A- A A+

Sen. Bernie Sanders will call for a federal ban on building for-profit charter schools in a major education policy address to be delivered Saturday in South Carolina, a senior campaign official for the 2020 presidential contender tells USA TODAY.

“Our school system can no longer put up fences for black and brown children,” Sanders said.

Additionally, Sanders will pledge to impose a moratorium on using taxpayer funds on charter school expansion in communities if he’s elected president, a position that the NAACP has been advocating.

The speech by Sanders comes one day after the 65th anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling handed down by the Supreme Court, which ruled segregation in public schools to be illegal.
