Prior to this significant push for Chicago’s charter schools more than one data reports showing for consecutive years there was a drop in gang violence.
Charter schools the new shiny trinket with programs to boot, public schools, broke, busted, with plenty of programs to cut. Isn’t it possible that charter schools created what was likely jealousy and animosity among gang members, while also combining Chicago public students from other communities into one schools has put them in harms way of gang lines. They are both targets.
Something you don’t hear how about: some charter schools students have been constantly targeted and guns being brandishing about in their presence.
I can’t help but wonder to the phrase ‘NO Child Left Behind’, how many students joined gangs because they saw what was more favor given to charter schools over those in attendance to public schools. It really does seem that the Chicago Public Schools were abandoned among a growing problem that came about from the decisions of closing Chicago Public Schools in the favor of charter schools, and students of different communities into crossing gang lines of other communities.
Then again that child doesn’t have to be relate to anyone in particular. They are all at risk

Was it too much? Do reports concerning Chicago students and decisions made around 1999 have more impact than anyone may have realized? Unlike the news we hear concerning Chicago today in 1998 there were reports of significant drop in unemployment, gang violence, and gun violence. In 1999 there would be even more reports that show gang violence was decreasing. What some consider as education reform has really been the fuel that has put so many students in harm’s way. As this type of education reform increases, so does the anger. Updated March 30, 2012 I have included information from 2011 that shows this growing gang anger can be directed back to education reform decisions made around such years as 1999. Continue reading

Wickliffe Preston Draper creator of the Pioneer Fund actually visited the Third Reich and had a very involved history back and forth with the Nazis. Promoting the betterment in education of White-Americans versus African-Americans was at the heart of everything he did. Desegregation would not slow down his efforts in keeping white children and blacks children learning together, it only spurred him into further efforts in keeping the two races separate. The Republican Party, Conservative, or GOP party, and Libertarians have no issue with associating with those associated with this group, from President on down. Continue reading

Charter schools supporters should have to write 500 times on the school black board “I am not a Public School that is just something I tell people to get public school funding.
No oversight could maybe mean they can contract business to themselves, friends and family members.
Before you know it all the friends and relations could have well paying jobs. Since charter schools are something the Republicans are pushing, when other people claim they can’t find work and need the government to extend unemployment benefits or state employees are facing cuts I guess Charter Schools can respond and say “They don’t take Government Hand outs.” Continue reading

It does not matter the accomplishments that have or been made in South Carolina Public Schools, Mick Zais, Nikki Haley, charter school and school voucher supporters don’t want to hear it, since they have other plans of their own. They are not rooting for public schools, because they dislike public schools. To Zais and his supporters, they have found a new means to give more money to charter schools and they plan on keeping that money as a part of their Educational Transformation Plans.
“The whole current system of No Child Left Behind is confusing to the public, its misleading to the parents and frankly its demoralizing to the hardworking professionals who are working so hard in out schools every day to help our children,” Zais said.
“Traditional proposals for improving education — more money, better facilities, improved curriculum and smaller classes — will not work. We’ve tried that. We’ve tried that for 40 years,” said Zais.
In 2011 Zais was concerned that the this big Republican state of South Carolina teachers were too liberal and that our school text books were too liberal. He was following the big Republican state of Texas who actually did re-wrote their books for the 2011-2012 school year because they thought their books were too liberal.
“We want to stress and emphasize at the stakeholder meetings that we are not trying to opt out of the No Child Left Behind program,” Bosket said. “We will not lose and federal funds by receiving these waivers. What we will gain is more flexibility to better serve our students. We want to stress that this process will not have a negative impact.”
Bosket said the waivers would eliminate the “all or nothing” component that is presently part of the No Child Left Behind law
What’s this is someone trying to Dumb Down our school system rather than bring up the level of education on South Carolina schools?
Sounds like it.
What this Stakeholders? Is someone trying to fund more Charter Schools. Public Schools are funded by you the tax payers and we arent referred to as stakeholders. Charter schools are funded with public school money. The full name of the program the waiver is in response to is never mention in this eight page waiver. It just gives the initials, and of course you know that’s what they gave to to the public to read.
Stakeholder may refer to:
Stakeholder (corporate), a person, group, organization, or system who affects or can be affected by an organization’s actions
Consumer stakeholder, a person or group with an interest in a business or organization; Project stakeholder, a person, group or organization with an interest in a project; Stakeholder theory, a theory that identifies and models the groups which are stakeholders of a corporation or project
Stakeholder analysis, the process of identifying those affected by a project or event; Stakeholder (law), a third party who temporarily holds money or property while its owner is still being determined
While some individuals may create charter schools,
Many Charter Schools are created and run by or involve Corporations, who still seek public school funding to create and run them.
In the waiver the Office of School Transformation is mention as the office that will be handling things.
The Office of School Transformation is supposed to be responsible for creating a new model that involves transformation of schools through supported efforts like Charter Schools and alternative Education , etc. So otherwords there stands a chance they are attempting to create more Charter Schools and provide them with more funding…..
