The landlords are trying their best to kick out public schools, and the less affluent families related to the public schools, so that will increase the property values a lot :). Hence, the push towards chartered schools.

However, typical second generation success families always have soft and unaware children, who deserve no more than anyone else. It is actually the germ in the belief of an endowed life which presupposes a specialness by birth. So, all you silicon valley success stories, your children are likely soft and should actually go to public school to see if they actually are better or just the same as every other spoiled child in this nation. I know you hope some day they will be king, but I will build a gallows. Unless tested against reality all espouse specialness is fake. It’s the falsehood of our fascist corporations and undoubtedly what destroys all societies, the endowed existence which ascends to power.

How do you see that working? No money for the teacher or supplies? Just start giving the money to the kids and hope for the best?

Good teachers need unions. Most of labor needs unions. The union evens the playing field with the owners so that both may benefit from the labor and the company. Education is the field that must benefit the employees and the society. Unions are working on reforms to improve the outcomes for individual students. The wealthy are paying to mold society toward a return on their investment.

Who do you think is really for the students? The corporate elite or a bunch of teachers who spend more time with your children than you do?

Answer: you don’t.

Unions are for losers who need someone to protect them.

End of story.

There was a time when children learned in one room schoolhouses and they grew up to be educated, well mannered, productive, upstanding productive members of society. Today….well let’s just sat maybe that nice little one room school house isn’t all that crazy of an idea this point.
I support charter schools and I support vouchers. I think telling a mother who has a bright kid that is forced to stay in a school where he or she is not being give the chance to rise to his/her fullest potential is just cruel and manipulative. We have many bright and spirited inner city kids that are being denied the right to thrive and grow because their parents are forced into a box of collective bargaining strongholds. What child or child’s mother should lay up at night wondering the way to obtain a scholarship to move their child outside the box that may be holding their child in?
