FOR LOW-INCOME KIDS; HO-HUM, YAWN, WINK
Here's another major study that shows that students who attend charter schools that have more leeway than traditional public schools do much better academically:
It's another major study that will be totally suppressed, if the educrats have their way, since charter schools just make too much darn sense, and apparently, the competition posed by higher-quality schooling is scary as heck to their cherished monopoly game.
Now, I don't like charter schools because I'm for private education -- private schools and homeschools -- as being the best form of educational liberty. Charter schools are fraught with peril -- have you heard about some of the Muslim-based ones that are springing up? And when you get right down to it, "he who pays the piper pays the tune." I don't believe an education bureaucracy that has been used to getting its own way for 40 years is going to cave in and grant real, true liberty to any charter school innovation any time soon.
In the meantime, the evidence is mounting that something, ANYTHING, will do the job better for kids than the monopoly system we have now. Somebody, ANYBODY, is bound to be listening. Hopefully, bigtime change is coming in a good way. So stay tuned.
