The chance to submit your opposition to Charter Schools closes this Thursday 24 January.
Our country’s teaching professionals are pretty much united in opposition to Charter Schools – where they have been tried overseas they are seeing (as with National Standards) a decline in relative educational outcomes. That is: systems that were behind us are falling further back.
If you want to read a good article on the subject, on the Wall Street Journal Diane Ravitch – formerly a strong proponent of national testing as well as charter schools – explains why those policies are failing the USA.
Do you want an unqualified teacher teaching your kids? Do you want public schools to become ghettos between publicly-funded but essentially private charter schools who can pick and choose their students? If not, submit now!
