(Some Guy)   Remember that Huffington Post article about how terrible charter schools are? Yeah, seems they got all the facts and figures wrong. Other than that the story was fine   (michigancapitolconfidential.com) divider line 13

Charter schools and vouchers are proof that education works great when you get to hand pick your students or tell the retarded kids to eat sh**.

/I'm aware that some charter schools produce fantastic results and mostly attribute the lack of derptastic school boards and long term fixed asset costs (like athletic facilities) to success
//I live in a state that does it wrong, hence the bias
///Slashies longer than actual comment!

BillCo: What a bunch of crap.  it's a known fact that students can only learn from a teacher who belongs to a union.


Exactly. Just look at their pensions, a teacher would have to be a moron to not join a union. Do you want your kid taught by a moron?

Is there any endeavor at all where private enterprise doesn't perform circles around the government? Aside from burning million$ greasing its own wheels, that is. The government has elevated that to an art form.

AverageAmericanGuy: Successful charter schools scare liberals because they show how non-union schools can do better by their students. Such schools make parents stand up and take notice and demand more money be spent funding charter schools. That money comes from the state education budget, and non-charter public schools lose that funding. Loss of funding means more union (Democrat) teachers out of a job.

It always comes down to money. It's never about the kids, as far as liberals are concerned.


That isn't an argument, and doesn't address the problems associated with charter schools.
The main problem with them is that they only "work" by filtering out the ineducable students that the public schools are forced to take. This is a serious crticism, and "Liberals don't like them because blah, blah, blah" doesn't answer that criticism - or any other.
Liberals like breathing - don't you think you should consider stopping the practice, since those damn Liberals like it so much?

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: profplump: Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: Ignoring a slightly bigger pile of information isn't going to make the problem better

But it's so much easier to let parents compete over the 1 or 2 good schools than to make policy changes that improve education for everyone.

Maybe, and I know this is going out on a limb here, but maybe, we could follow the educational lead of every other industrialized country on the planet and set education policy at the federal level by experts, rather than letting it be controlled by Mary Sue who ran for local school board when she found out they were telling little Susie about evolution. Crazy thought I know.

but mary sue is both a licensed real estate agent and on the church social committee!

You man people are still paying to educate their children? I thought they were perfect in every way and only needed self-esteem reinforcement until they turned 18 and then they magically become doctors and lawyers.

ArkAngel: My apartment building went up in flames about two years ago. It happened during a driving snowstorm and the firemen had been up the previous night dealing with a house that exploded. It's things like this that prove them to be heroes.

BTW, here's the pic of me that got sent out on the wire.
