    This is the same concept as private schools. Freedom to teach what works for each individual child as opposed to forcing regurgitation down their throats as opposed to teaching how to think outside the box and to think critically and question. Schools have become nothing but indoctrination factories.

    Notice how you don't see my state, Texas, having idiot teachers. We basically neutered the Unions, but we still have millions of ISD bureaucrats. I would say bloated bureaucracies are the real danger. Yes, Texas has Charter and Government schools, but even charter schools have big bureaucracies that make them just as sluggish as Gov schools. In the long run, they will end up just as bad as Gov schools if the School Boards don't limit the percentage of bureaucrats.

    Grosso is a typical union idiot who believes that they can do a better job for teachers than the administrators and teachers of private schools. He comes off like a mafia don telling John that he is going to stop them physically if he has to. At that I say when they come calling beat the shit out of them. Unions had their place right up until the 1950s when they got so strong they believe they could sway political agendas of our Government, and were essentially forcing everyone to belong to their unions so dues could keep flowing in and thus the unions agenda along with the exorbitant wages of the union leaders like this guy. Many corporations managed to get the unions out of their businesses and the reason that they now have essentially no more power.

    I had a teacher in high school who came to my school. She formally taught in an inner city school, gave that up, came to our school for less money. Her reason? Kids are nicer. We were a small rural public school with a graduating class of 200. But it taught me a little about attitude. In a public school system, if you get no support from the administration, they shrug off problems, you can't even get the supplies you need! Of course you couldn't pay a teacher enough in that environment.

    So the teachers don't care, because they're not supported by the administration. The kids stop caring because they have no structure at school and maybe not even at home. So it becomes a big cess pool of rot.

    I graduated high school in 1968. I had good, caring teachers. That was the year the teachers in my state unionized. They were underpaid and needed to organize to improve their standard of living. The main problem with Unions however, is that once an objective has been reached, you can't get rid of them. Now, like many Unions, they just serve to protect the teachers who should probably be in another line of work.

    Here is what I don't understand about the hysteria against charter schools and vouchers: even if they don't provide as good an education, that still doesn't mean that parents should be denied the choice to send their kids there. Ultimately, the decision on where students go to school should be for families, not the government.

    I love the idea of having no teachers' unions. The idea that your job security is based off of how well you do and how hard you work is your security. As shown in the video, the teachers are even more motivated and care so much more about the kids. Public school teachers just don't care enough to try most of the time.

    If you're able you should homeschool them & hire your own teacher. The hell with all of these public & private schools. They should all be glad I don't have the authority to put every goddamn last one of them out of business because I damn sure would. No matter how long it might take. Education should be left up to the parents at home. These private schools only pick & take the ones they want & make money doing it. Pieces of damn garbage! Public schools couldn't teach a dog to sit..while leeching taxpayers. They both are a money making joke & should be illegal. Those teachers at private & Catholic schools can go fuck them selves for all I care!

    Like everything else in this country, the unions have destroyed businesses and schools. Come to Rochester NY where the union controlled city schools graduate less than 50% of the students! Last year the graduation rate was 48%! Of those that graduate, only about 3% are ready for college level course work! It is criminal what the unions Have done and refuse to do to fix this disaster. Year after year thousands of kids leave school with no skills or diploma to get a job. They become a burden on the city, state and federal government. Tenure preserves poor performing teachers. The head of the union has been in control forever and refuses all changes. Oh and the teachers pay and benefits are some of the highest in the country!

    What about discipline? That is the number one thing holding kids back in public schools. It is too PC to discipline the child to not bother others, to do their work, etc. There is very little support in public school for teachers. What does a charter school do to support the teacher when a kid acts up or bullies others? THAT is the big question. What about parents wanting to enable and coddle their child when the child is clearly wrong? What do charter schools do about that? Tell me, anyone?

    I love that Newark, "Nooo Joisee" Teachers' Union Boss defending tenure for public school teachers by likening it to becoming a "made man" in the Mafia. The guy doesn't have a clue what that actually says about the public schools and the teachers' unions - "Weez like da MAH-FeeeYAH, ya' knows? Chure, yooz put in yoo time an' ya do what da bosses tellya ta do an' denn yooz become 'made', like, yoo knows, like a 'made man' what dohn hasta woik da streets no more like no common crim'nuhl, onnacounta heez 'made', see, an' datz what diss 'tenner' ting is, yoo know, like bein' a 'made guy'..." Uh, yeah, I understand perfectly (or, in his lingo, "poy-fuklee"). You stay quiet, do as you're told for 5, 6, maybe 10 years and, thereafter, you don't have to actually work. You just collect your money from the racket. As I said, "Poy-fuk".

      Oops, and THEN there is Mr. Saunders, Pres. of the Washington Teachers' Union: (Stossel) "Your results (on student testing) are AWFUL! They're among the lowest in the nation! (Saunders) "You make an argument that it's the lowest in the nation based upon the test scores..."
      WHAT? WTF? What kind of dumb-f*ck "DUH" answer is that? You have the lowest test scores in the nation/You only say that because we have the lowest test scores in the nation. Yeah, okay, that's kind of the point, isn't it?
      Oh, sure, I know the guy's point was that on all the "unmeasurable" things, his teachers are doing great work. That's the great thing about being "unmeasurable" - you can claim anything you want because there is no way to quantify or qualify or judge your assertions or self-assessment. It's like arguing that your invisible girlfriend is the prettiest girl in the room. Who knows, maybe she is. And maybe she isn't. And, in any event, she's f*ckin' invisible, you damn fool! So she could be beautiful or hideous or... or even non-existent and your claims about her are useless and pointless and, dare I say it, highly suspect. My God, this guy's even worse than Mr. Joisee Mafia. And he's the best they've got because they made him "President" of all the teachers. Makes you wonder how bad the underlings are.

    This shouldn't even be a fight: more choice is ALWAYS good with education. EVERY kid has his/her own needs...they ALL need to be addressed and a unified governmental conglomerate made up of bureaucrats and union leaders does NOT look out for the best interests of individual students. They can't: they exist in a system that DEMANDS collectivism, or the unions will strike. We get EXACTLY the kind of system that such a machination requires: mediocrity and stagnation. American kids deserve (and pay) for so much better than this.

    The problem with school choice is that those in richer neighborhoods will be getting swamped with student applications. Then the problem becomes how do we select the students that are allowed into our schools. The choice is not the parents but the school/ county administrators. So why do I think only rich neighborhoods are going to get swamped? Here is my math. In Montgomery county (3rd in $ per student) 66% of the money raised is from local sources. 27% from Maryland state(11th in $ per student). AND ONLY 3% comes from federal sources. So $12,000 that this student can take to School x does not factor in which district this student lives in. The kid that lives in Potomac/Bethesda could be bringing a school upwards of $28,000. Where a kid from another could only bring the national average of $12,000. If you were a school administrator, whose paycheck is now decided by which students you choose, what would you do? SO all school choice will end up doing is creating an even larger class system of schools where you can only go to the best schools if you live in the richest counties. OHH wait that is already happening.... So I am honestly asking what will school choice fix?

    Sunshine High, a charter alternative school run by a for-profit company, stands a few doors down from a tobacco shop and a liquor store in a strip mall. It offers no sports teams and few extra-curricular activities.
    Sunshine’s 455 students - more than 85 percent of whom are black or Hispanic - sit for four hours a day in front of computers with little or no live teaching. One former student said he was left to himself to goof off or cheat on tests by looking up answers on the internet. A current student said he was robbed near the strip mall’s parking lot, twice.

      Sounds like a lot of inner-city schools. Using state law enforcement. I looked it up and they are not an impressive school at all. But you're not looking at all the facts. Sunshine is booked, as are the other local charters. The public system can't handle the load of students, and while nearly all lag behind national averages in scores, they get great reviews from customers and outperform the local state schools. This, with almost no competition at all.
      But let's just forget all that and say they suck. Charter schools are still under state contract, so the state apparently thinks they are doing okay and continues to pay them. In a free market, or with a voucher system, they could always go out of business. The free market has never developed perfect strategies right away, it evolves superior means through trial and error in a timely fashion. Or it does not and the losers go away. Public schools do not do that. There's no incentive to be better in a timely manner.

    Teachers Unions are destroying poor communities. I went to a public school that had union teachers. However, it was a rich white community. My public school if it didn't like a teacher could fire that teacher. They didn't mind the paperwork. They just did it. However, black inner city schools don't have the parents who have the money. Money is what makes a parent powerful. You can just move. Poor black parents cannot just up and leave a city. That's the problem. They are stuck with the shit Union school.

    I sympathize. The testing companies make a fortune convincing legislators to require their tests, then they sell materials to school districts to prepare for the tests and teach to the tests so they can pass. There are dozens of such tests every year and the motive is to sell tests, sell testing materials, sell test lessons, etc. Its a scam on the kids and the parents by government lobbyists who are forcing them to buy their testing products.

    Although I do support the idea of a more flexible education program the way Charter schools are being carried out is frankly corrupt. In Michigan, about 65% of the charter schools are run by for-profit educational management organizations and the executive of charter school Eva Moskowitz manages to make close to half a million dollars overseeing programs that service 6,700 students while New York State Education Commissioner is paid a salary of $212,000 to oversee programs with 2.7 million students.

    There is no union here in Virginia's schools and I assure you that when I leave (always at 5 PM or later), that parking lot is full of teachers' cars. Where do they think those charter-school teachers are coming from? Many are former-public school teachers who were dismissed or quit because of insubordination issues. Same with private schools. Everything we do now comes down to data and test scores, though. Still, we work very hard to make school engaging for all of our children, not just those with engaged parents who rise at the crack of dawn to scurry down to a lottery to get their child into a program they think will be beneficial to them. I would not want a union in my state, telling me when it was time to go home, how many hours per week I can spend planning lessons (I average 14 hours/week now). What we need is parental support, we need our students' parents to hold youngsters accountable for their academic performance. BTW: I do not make anywhere NEAR 100,000, not even half that and I LOVE what I do!
