So now I'm bad for not giving up my career and dedicating it to educational funding change?
No one said you had to devote your life.
Involvement doesn't mean 60 HR work weeks.
Also, doesn't your wife not work?
I'm in an urban district in Atlanta and it is happening to my district and neighboring elementary school districts.
So I disagree
Why are you being so dramatic?
Do you think ppl who are involved in schools have two parents who don't work?
So going back to my original post, they’re not great everywhere but they’re also not a negative drain on the public education sector as a whole. Atlanta public schools has their own set of issues largely due to a state legislature that is focused on moving public funds to private schools. Just curious, do you teach in Atlanta?
We're not talking about PTA meetings. He's talking about changing school funding at the state level.
She doesn't. She does a lot with the church and a women's shelter. And we have a 2.5 yr old that she does a lot with. So now she needs to stop those things to work to make the school better? And we have to live in an older house even though we can afford a bigger new one? Any other things you want us to do to fit your idealistic world?
No don't teach.
I think APS distributes funding the same. We have a lot of issues due to I equality and districts drawn specifically to segregate the population.
Whne I bought my last house, I was initially in a better district but literally on the south side of the tracks. The aggressive and mean attacks from the wealthy neighbors during our last redistricting was absurd. It also caused the middle school in my district to close.
Luckily, people are staying in town and not escaping to thr suburbs and will continue to make the schools better. We're also fighting agaisnt a k-12 school that decimates our public school enrollment.
But, all said, both east side elementary schools are really good due to involved and committed parents. Crazy they work too
You don't think she, and you (you're not that busy), could do a little at the school?
No one's demanding you to quit your jobs, quit being a dramatic bitch.
A ground swell of small participation can do a lot
Make up your kind again.
A little? Sure. Is that going to change funding and get better teachers?
Low income schools have good teachers too
As I've said in this thread, since you clearly aren't following, school rankings are pure shit and based on socioeconomic rankings.
My school is "terrible" on great schools bc we have a section 8 development and a lot of poor residents
I don't think you get how much funding title 1 schools receive from the federal govt
Pretty sure I do.
School districts in 2017-18 received 40.53 percent of their financial support from state sources, 47.96 percent from local sources (including the Required Local Effort portion of the FEFP) and 11.51 percent from federal sources.
You've also said you will and then later said you do send your kid to a school that's worse than what you could so I don't know what to even make of what you're arguing now. Honestly you come off as a blow hard throwing out idealistic views that no parent is going to actually do when dealing with their kids education.
Do you agree that more funding helps a school?
Of course but a good teacher is a good teacher and will make it work and be good in just about any school.
Typos from being drunk last night don't invalidate the point.
Yes. I could move and go to the northern burbs and send my kid to a "great school" ranked by a website.
I will continue to live in my urban neighborhood that has "bad schools" because it has a large make up of children who receive free or reduced lunch
Are you currently sending your kid to the lower rated school?
Free or reduced lunch isn’t a great barometer of whether a school is socio economically poor or not, there are a ton of schools that encourage enrollment in these types of programs because it’s a metric for funding, whether the child’s family needs the program or not.
It’d be fair to argue that this is a symptom of a different problem certainly.
My kid is currently in gestation.
I just bought a new house within the same school district I've lived in and supported the elementary school in for the last 10 years
Friend of mine did this with baseball at Penn.
So the answer is no, your kid does not go to the lower rated school.
Dbl would you consider a $15,000 bribe to get your kid into Harvard? If you get caught you have to spend 3 weeks in jail, pay $40k and do 100 hours of community service
You just want the best for them
I specifically bought in a school district, support said school, and my child will be going there. Nothing changes
In addition to the fines, jail time, and community service, you will also have to put up with me telling you that you’re part of the problem.
I draw the line at illegal.
Just giving you shit
charters schools are the devil. They don’t have to follow the same rules as regular public schools. Take money from the regular local schools. Often are started by grifters that take the money and run seriously fuck charter schools they are unnecessary and undermine public education.
charter schools are in essence private schools using public funds. They are weakening public education. Unlike regular public schools they get to pick and choose who attends. They can get rid of any student. Then they point to there numbers and say “look the private sector has successfully fixed the public’s sectors problem”.
The charter school in my district demands parental involvement, especially in disciplinary situations. If the child gets in trouble, the parents have to come to school for a full day and sit with the child.
I'd they don't? The get booted back to public school. Which privileged group does this support? Where do the children end up that can't have a parent miss work for a full Dan and probably don't have a ton of support at home?
These are the children they are trying to support but weed em out
I have a weird proposal. Instead of creating something to divert money and resources from the local school why not give those things to the local public school.
It's pretty wild the school closest to me gets equal funding and the only way I can get in is through a very difficult lottery system
My wife worked for Colin Powell Leadership Academy charter school in Dayton, ask me anything. JK, I don’t know a fucking thing. I am glad she got that experience, though.
Paradoxically (or perhaps not given these prosecutions) this would be much more tempting for a stupid kid than a smart one
