1. As best I have been able to determine, charter schools were first promoted by Democrats.
yes, the Republicans thought it was a capital idea and jumped all over that bandwagon, but they saw the idea as having originated with Democrats and, in particular, Shanker, then the head of the teachers' union in NY.

And certainly, Democrats all over the country are on this bandwagon, side by side and equally enthusiastic with Republicans.
