I got it. Message received loud and clear. ASD wins!!
Now, that they know they have people actively spreading the word about their misdeeds, they want to recruit! Yes, of course, let’s pass a bill that will allow them to actively recruit!
What about OUR kids? In 10 years, when the contract is up, where will our children be? Left in the lurch?? Oh well, we tried! Will they be behind in community college? Hummm…
Research shows that poverty is the biggest factor in education. I can see that, to an extent. In my opinion it’s home training. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. We have to raise our kids. We have to let them fall so they can learn to pick themselves up. We will not always be there. We have to teach them life skills at home. Education should begin in the home in the first place. We cannot leave it up to the schools to do these things. These are OUR babies.
As far as public vs. charter; It’s YOUR choice. I see flaws all around! I had been looking into charter’s because of what I had heard to be happening at NBMP. They,however, got a fabulous principal in place with a fresh staff to turn this school around. I wanted to see this effort. What I did see was a bright staff that were eager to teach and love our kids.
I don’t think ASD takeovers are the answer. I think supporting and funding our neighborhood schools is the answer.
