TV: Breaking Bad's Pro-Charter School Board Member

image from c.o0bc.comSorry, all of you charter critics who love "Breaking Bad." Your enjoyment of the show -- like your use of Apple devices and Amazon Prime -- is more complicated than you might like it to be.

On the right, that's real-life charter school parent and Albuquerque school board member Steven Michael Quezada, who plays DEA agent Steven Gomez on "Breaking Bad."

Yep.  It's true. According to his official Albuquerque Public Schools bio, the longtime actor was on the board for the Public Academy for the Performing Arts charter school (where his children attend school).

He's going to appear at an upcoming charter school conference (here).

As a member of the ALB school board, he's actually a charter authorizer -- and spoke at the October NACSA meeting too.

I don't know of too many fans who insist on absolute political purity in every performer in every production they view. That notion was made up on the spur of the moment to taunt charter critics.
