Our Community Our Schools 5-13-14: the word "charter"

Our Community Our Schools Rally 5-13-14
The word "charter" is a critical component in this battle. 
  • "Charter" means some group was able to pick and choose from state requirements that are no longer required, requirements that evolved over many decades of experience. 
  • "Charter" means parents must be more vigilant.
  • "Charter" means parents must realize that repeated research has shown that charter schools, on the average, do not serve all students as well as non-charter public schools.
  • "Charter" means parents must decide if their child is one of those to be better served by that charter.  (Yes, that is an awkward fact.  When do schools not serve all students?)
