    With "Common Core" so completely wrapped around its own axle, and Betsy pushing private schools, vouchers, and Home schooling, I think we could see the collapse of the education of America.

    So be it. We've had our run to the sun. Maybe it's time to pack up & pack it in. Truthfully, as long as my son & his family survive I'd be smart for myself to no longer giving a phuk. Enough is enough already.

    Choice, such a horrible concept.

    How many people with means send their children to government schools? Certainly, no high government official does.

    So who losses by choice?

    They send their kids to superior private schools, not the crappy ones that the poor unwashed will send their kids to. The best thing the rest of us can have are good public schools, not schools where the sciences & maths won't be covered well, high standard public schools are the best for the rest.

    goverment knows best?

    I don't understand how anybody could think all government schools are equal and offer a quality level of service.

    I find it incredulous that anybody would be denied the opportunity to move their children to a better school.

    Not just private schools, but Charter or Magnet schools. Options, choice.

    Charter & magnet schools are allowed to pick & choose which students will up their scores. Just because a parent may want such a school for their kid is absolutely no guarantee the child will be allowed entry. Given that, they should end up in a high standard public school. Where else should they go if refused? A low standard public school whose budget was raped & given to the Charters & Magnets? Face it, the overwhelming majority of students DO go to public schools so it must be ensured the public school is up to the challenge.

    Exactly. Having access does not mean you will get that education. It just means it's there, and you can go knock on the door.
    I have access to the University of Colorado. I can go to the campus and wander about. But they probably won't give me an education unless I can afford the tuition.
    And even then, only if they have a seat in class, and want someone with my lack of certified credentials.

    And, yes, the Charter Schools are there. The problem is that DeVos and company want to take the public school funds and spend them on the Charters and such.
    Not entirely against the idea. Just don't see paying for full tuition at a charter from public school funds.

    Even if evidence shows differently ?


    Decent Government should prioritize education and health for all it's citizens as an investment.

    Has her conflict of interest been mentioned? Not that that seems to be an issue with this administration.

    The high school I graduated from, long before there was the concept of charter schools was a great school. I just wish I could have spent my full high school three years there. Today it is a charter school.

    The first year and a half were spent at a high school which offered extracurricular activities including intimidation, larceny, and race riots. At least the administration realized that and we had periodic "can't we all get along" lectures. Today that is not a charter school.

    Those schools are about 6 miles apart. Both schools financed by the same school district.

    Parents don't give a crap, why should their children?
