Charter schools are tax payer funded K-12 schools that are managed by private companies. In the U.S. there are approximately 2.9 million students enrolled in 6,700 charter schools. Charter schools are approved and governed by city, county or state governments. Beneficiaries of private schools include real-estate investors who typically own the buildings and land where the schools are housed. Opponents of charter schools argue that they take money away from the public education system and enrich private companies and real estate investors who own the land where the schools are built. Proponents argue that students in charter schools consistently have higher test scores than public school students and note that there are millions of students across the U.S. who are currently on waitlists for private schools.
Both public and charter schools need to be improved and having to be accepted into a private school should not be a thing, if a student wants to challenge themselves and go to a harder school they should have the freedom to do so.
No, keep the funding in the public school system, and work on making the system equal across the nations. Take the regulation out of the hands of the states and regulate it at the federal level. This is how we stop educational oppression.
No, and the current school system should be entirely reformed. Homework causes students to have lots of negative stress, sleep deprivation, depression, etc. The current curriculum and textbooks are all inherently biased as the people who write them are almost all left-wing, with little if any right-wing input. School hours should be shorter, which will put less stress on students and allow for more personal and family time. Tenure should be abolished, and teachers who do evil acts should be fired on the spot. Schools have been turned into socialist brain-washing camps. The writer of this attends a public school, and he knows that. Uniforms threaten individual expression and force conformity. There are many other problems that could be listed.
