They usually operate at a lower cost than the public schools

2018-12-24 20:58:11 UTC  

I come from a long line of soldiers and teachers. Fairly well versed on the subject.

2018-12-24 20:58:28 UTC  

How low the operating cost is doesn't matter if you don't go there.

2018-12-24 20:58:46 UTC  

Thomas Sowell speaks highly of charter schools

2018-12-24 20:58:58 UTC  

It's not free, yet the government mandates that all children must attend school.

2018-12-24 20:58:59 UTC  

They're usually under their budget, unlike the other ones

2018-12-24 20:59:10 UTC  

Which frankly is BS

2018-12-24 20:59:28 UTC  

"No child left behind" is a disaster.

2018-12-24 20:59:45 UTC  

public schools are bad in general

2018-12-24 21:00:05 UTC  

we learned the same thing in every grade

2018-12-24 21:00:22 UTC  

Well yeah but if the government would let them run at the state level it would be so much better. Get those dumb ass policies out.

2018-12-24 21:00:46 UTC  

If a kid won't learn, kick them out.

2018-12-24 21:01:09 UTC  

if you say stuff like that, people will act as though you shot their grandma

2018-12-24 21:01:36 UTC  

leftists are really emotional about any sort of change in that direction

2018-12-24 21:01:45 UTC  

The charter schools here, are an offshoot of a single district, and they're funded with the per-student amount that their home district would have gotten, but it's diverted to the charter school

2018-12-24 21:01:46 UTC  

Too bad.

2018-12-24 21:02:06 UTC  

And yes, that's how it works everywhere

2018-12-24 21:02:19 UTC  

That seems much better, I don't see the problem

2018-12-24 21:02:47 UTC  

Issue is when poor neighborhoods have the state put many of their students in charter schools, taking the funding with them.

2018-12-24 21:03:32 UTC  

Suddenly you can hardly afford textbooks let alone pay the teachers fairly

2018-12-24 21:03:49 UTC  

how much good would it do if we just got rid of teachers unions?

2018-12-24 21:03:58 UTC  

Bad idea.

2018-12-24 21:04:08 UTC  

That sounds like a budgeting problem, not a charter school problem

2018-12-24 21:04:18 UTC  

Fuck teachers unions

2018-12-24 21:04:28 UTC  

Teachers are one of the most important professions because they groom the future. But get paid shit.

2018-12-24 21:04:29 UTC  

My uncle just retired early because of that

2018-12-24 21:04:43 UTC  

Privatize all this shit

2018-12-24 21:05:26 UTC  

they don't get paid shit really, but yeah i'm with Fitz, most of this shit would be better privatized

2018-12-24 21:05:37 UTC  

My mother was going to get fucked over and not get her benefits because of her sabatical, so the union pressured the school board to pay out. I would probably be homeless.

2018-12-24 21:06:05 UTC  

She can barely walk.

2018-12-24 21:06:44 UTC  

He was threatened with a knife by a MIDDLE SCHOOL student, brought him to the priniple, the student was apologized to, my uncle reprimanded, and the the kids PARENTS threatened him in a parking lot after school

2018-12-24 21:07:04 UTC  


2018-12-24 21:07:06 UTC  

She worked with inner city kids and put up with racist little black kids in foster care, that wouldn't listen to anything you told them.

2018-12-24 21:07:13 UTC  

Yeah sounds normal

2018-12-24 21:07:15 UTC  

*He teaches fucking music.*

2018-12-24 21:07:20 UTC  


2018-12-24 21:07:33 UTC  

Happens all the time. The parent is the customer.

2018-12-24 21:07:35 UTC  

Fuck unions in general

2018-12-24 21:07:35 UTC  

was this in the ghetto or something?

2018-12-24 21:07:52 UTC  

Sort of, but not really
