Re: “A Different Perspective on the Diane Douglas/Board of Education Battles

The legislature created statutes do that have zero requirements for education nor experience for principals and teachers within charter schools. Charter schools can be for-profit. Charter schools do not have to pay for a librarian, health clerk, counselor, social worker, bus driver, cafeteria worker or crossing guard. Where does the money go? For-Profit private owners or "Non-profit charter management companies which are owned by private individuals or corporations. Some are even owned by the legislative representative themselves. Now these are facts that anyone can verify with the legislature or board of education. They may not want to answer you. It is all in the statutes. Ask your local charter school for the documentation of the principal's and teacher's education before sending your child to that school. Not a certificate from the school but actual college degree. They require them in regular schools.

We cannot get the legislature to change these laws because it is in their financial interest. What we can do is not support the charter schools that are taking millions of our hard earned money and pocketing it. You also think charter schools are a good choice? Do you think a person with a G.E.D. can teach your child common core? Really? Look at your school close before you send your child there. It is that simple. The scores may be high for the charter schools but are they/ true and accurate? Do the research and you will see there are scams on those scores as well.
