This is a point by point replication of the ALEC agenda to privatize public education and abolish the teaching profession.
Follow this template and your state will get the same performance as Louisiana and DC.
Unable to find the “point by point replication”, as an add keeps getting in the way and preventing access to hotlinks.
The ALEC agenda: you can google “ALEC Exposed” or read Rhee’s report
Is this it: http://www.alecexposed.org/wiki/Privatizing_Public_Education,_Higher_Ed_Policy,_and_Teachers
This looks like the one! Thank you, mathcs!
The inability to access or reproduce this vital article is not the first such problem I have encountered. Controlling the internet has been a major goal for the corporatist s, and it would appear they are achieving this in a covert, but affective, non-legislative manner. To say this bodes ill for the freedom of the press, and more importantly, for the freedom of the public to know the issues clearly is a 1984 loss of freedom. One can not fight for rights one does not know are being taken by globalists, corporatism that are running more unchecked daily! I tried to access a site that had to do with exposing our DPS
Superintendent’s scurrilous actions and had a message pop up that said, “This article is being deleted by a third party.” If that doesn’t make one realize the depth of this undemocratic agenda of truly “dumbing down the public” by unconstitutional means,
“Controlling the internet”. Conspiracies everywhere.
Article mentions Michelle Rhee’s views on accountability.
How should schools and teachers be held accountable or should they?
What about the parents of kids in failing schools should they be accountable?
Define “failing school”.
That’s a good question. I suspect the parents in DC who used the Opportunity Scholarships to get their kids out of the DCPS had a definition that might be different than mine. Schools are a local issue. To address your question,
I would say a school where more money is spent per student than almost any other school in the area and results (graduation rate, student safety, grades and test scores) are below most other schools in the area.
Please call “opportunity scholarships” by their rightful name, not the euphemism: vouchers.
