for me it’s “the welfare system is imperfect so I don’t care if kids starve”.
I always tie good schools (and local taxes) into my argument that it keeps our property values up. Doesn’t change people’s minds fully but at least makes them realize there is some good behind them.
You said the T word.
My mom is retiring in a year because they are already either cutting her hours or making her do more work than she is already doing as a TAG teacher
They are also firing so many staff members in Ft Worth
Texas is fucked
My kid is in a financially strapped private school and I have zero desire to see public funds go anywhere near it, so dumb to kneecap public ed.
I don’t have kids so it doesn’t impact me, but if home schooling your kid or sending your kid to a private/charter school is a big financial burden then you should take the public school choice to save money. That’s the choice.
That's not what any of this conversation is about.
Anyone with a home should want their area to have quality public schools for home value alone.
But they're all idiots.
That’s a viable scenario in some areas, sure. In others it’s not, and it doesn’t factor in the erosion of the public school system due to charters and vouchers.
I've long been in favor of school district consolidation in AR, especially as it pertains to rural AR. Anxious to see the reaction as the unintended ripples work their way through this poor and poorly educated state. Fuck huck
should just go on a perp walk marathon
will probably need the golf cart tho
I know, I’ve just heard that argument about it helping parents financially. I’m well aware this is going to fuck public schools and that’s what everyone here is against. My dad worked as a teacher and guidance counselor here in Florida for years so I’m well aware this state is moving towards this since the state government loves shitting on public schools. We’ve talked about this and it pisses him off.
Him trying to do the stupid wave he does with his hands cuffed behind his back is going to be my favorite thing
He’s not going to be cuffed. Not that he doesn’t deserve to be but the NYPD and the secret service would be in coordination so handcuffing him wouldn’t be necessary
Don’t take this from me
Has his orangeness popped off about being free and Tuesday's gone?
for me its more just further inflating the income divide
wealthier ppl will get access to better schools, poors will be less educated. And that obviously favors white people. Or at least i think that is Republicans' aims.
we used to have the voucher/charter debate in the old shit pit thread.
The amount of horrendous private schools thar get created and either fail or provide terrible education will be astonishing
one Muslim group could stop the whole thing.
Think TMB needs to open up a charter school in Palestine Texas
there are ways to get to the same ends without privatization, but the only redeeming charter school i’ve seen is one in Birmingham specifically for queer and trans youth.
Both these statements are true imo.
the takeaway- America is bizarre.
He’s gonna be bound and gagged
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
My kids charter school is incredible but it’s a weird situation. KCPS lost their accreditation about a decade back under a crappy administration so charter/private/homeschool were the only options. I love his school because it’s the most diverse in the city. Each class is divided into 4 tables of 5 and each table has at least one white/black/hispanic kid. My 8 year old has the cultural education that I didn’t reach until my 30s (my ENTIRE HS had 1 black and 2 hispanic families total).
All charter schools are bad. All of them. They take away resources from local public schools. They get to pick and choose who they accept and kick out whoever they want. They act like private schools but with public funds. All of them are bad.
“Fixing” education is seriously so easy
1. Make breakfast and lunch free to all students, including weekends and the summer; and
2. Pay teachers more.
That’s it. That’s literally all that needs to be done
The system will always be hamstrung by parents that don't give a single fuck about their child's well being (and there are a lot of them) but at least your options get us pretty far down the line
Give everyone access to free Pre-K starting at 3 or 4 years old and baby you got a stew going
If you want to do something fun look at the rise of private schools and how it tracks with the start of integration
Also a strong social safety net for needy families including access to the internet.
This is one of their reasons.
Don’t forget getting white kids out of more diverse schools and the ability to teach Christian nationalism with public funds.
I disagree that this is all that needs to be done, but they are a great first step and would go a long way in fixing some issues.
Damn, what was it like being everyone's homecoming opponent in football?
But all those Robert E. Lee private schools and Lee Academies cared most about providing quality education in towns across the south.
While both of these would be great first steps, that's not close to being all that needs to be done.
All of our Montgomery posters are about to he really mad
Imagine how easy life must be for someone as stupid as tommy t
If only they knew how to read
Yeah KCMO has been way ahead of the curve with shitty public schools. Charters or parochial are really the only good options here. We’re right by Border Star but my wife really wants to do a Catholic school because that’s what she did.
Does anyone have a good article to link on the systematic destruction of the public school systems and the repercussions in the US?
I think it’s parents who think their kid is the only child in the building and that they somehow deserve special treatment or a personalized education or other actions, outside of IEPs and 504s. I moved into an admin role and actually had a parent tell me that anytime I discipline their kid no matter even if it is for breaking out tardy rules I needed to call her and get approval before following through.
Do you have to accept that?
I live in a neighborhood in Atlanta that has a charter school. Started out solely to provide for a legacy public housing development that was really neglected. Probably a good cause.
But then it grew and had excess capacity. The area surrounding it was a much older demographic, not many children. So it pulled from surrounding neighborhoods elementary schools. It also then pulled from the local elementary schools.
The demographics started shifting heavily younger. When APS redistricted, they closed two local elementary schools and put them into a single one. Punished the neighborhood for sending their kids to either private or the charter school. Cascading effects closed our local Middle School too.
Luckily growth was strong enough thar we've filled back up our local public schools to capacity and they are talking about reopening some empty schools.
Definitely did temporary damage, but we seemed to be rebounding.
absolutely not. By sending your child to school legally you are handing over some rights to the school
There's definitely a line. As a parent, you should be your child's strongest advocate. But I've also had parents request some ridiculous stuff along these lines over the years.
Although more often than not, stuff like that was an escalation stemming from poor communication between home and school.
in Philadelphia, the charter elementary schools have almost completely replaced the private catholic schools that preceded them. there are still a still catholic schools hanging on, but what was once 3-4 schools in an area has now been combined into one.
there's also the issue that for middle and high school there are "target schools" that are fully public but you have to test into them. so they pull in all the good students or students with parents who care enough to prep them for the test, and then basically every public school after fifth grade is just struggling to keep the kids in line, forget about actually keeping them on course with the curriculum.
So are the AI trump arrest photos. Cringe memes everywhere
This is a good enough topic (schools) for a thread dedicated to it...going to just get worse and become more of a battle
to be fair, there is a public Robert E Lee High School in Montgomery
One kind of exists...
I'm pretty sure I know who half of Lee-Scott academy in Auburn, AL is named after. Considering it opened in 1965 immediately after federal integration.
And the Rober E Lee school in Montgomery was named by white guys as a heavy signal to I'm sure the predominantly black population. It's pretty common
