I live in Ohio, and one of the reasons Planned Parenthood was defunded by Governor Kasich was because they were caught Illegally selling aborted baby parts to the illegal organ market. You conveniently left out that important detail.

The US is undergoing the same death as the Roman, and many other empires. When a system deprives its own children it is in its death throwes. Rampant capitalism in the US is comparable with what led to the French revolution - when greed overtook morals. Lets just hope the US does not chuck all its nukes outa the pram before 'Muricans finally accept the 21st century. And let's end this idea that Religion works on a for profit basis - it is what has brought the US to this abysmal state.

Found this to be very one-sided. Charter schools can be bad in some areas but look at some of the worst performing public schools and it is shocking what public schools get away with. Most charter schools out perform their public school counterparts. Many in charter schools, like me, were flat out rejected from public school due to mental retardation and we still wind up out performing kids in public school. Charter schools get a fraction of the funding public schools do, take the reject seconds public schools leave behind, and still outperform the public schools. Don't understand how this can even be discussed without showing how much more successful charter schools are than public schools. Bad charter schools are closed down, bad public schools get more money and continue f&%*ing up kids. Charter schools can can get away with shafting kids for a few years before getting shut down, public schools shaft them forever. One system is obviously better than another.

Charter schools soak up the budget and make it harder low income areas to get good education. I hate them. I used to be for them, but then I studied with an honors college in college. There, a lot of students tuition, whether honors college or not, went to funding honors college events, and even to making a building just for the honors college students. There was a classist divide. The honors college students also took much better classes. Their general ed was completely different. This might make sense because its 'honors'. But I strongly believe that EVERY student should have the opportunity to have good education. It shouldn't be a classist divide. This is the same problem with charter schools.

I went to a charter school for middle and high school. As a product of that system, I watched countless friends drop out before tenth grade including myself and didn't actually learn anything. My last year of middle school my social studies teacher just let us play Risk every single day stating it was " increasing our world knowledge"...We need to regulate charter schools better. Like many others, my principal also "plead guilty to using school funds".

Charter schools don't work very well, yes the teachers can be nice but the higher up staff aren't so friendly here in texas, they shiver at the threat of TEA but still treat both staff and students like babies, teachers get low pay, kids get bad food, heck I've even known some students who gave the teachers money to get them food on their lunch break. I mean yea school food is bad but imagine regular public school food but expired and stale.
And as nice as the teachers are, the REASON why charter schools prosper in grades is because the work given to them is so easy it's like 2 grade levels below worth of work than the actual grade you're in.

Eh, the first grand-scale experiment with those schools was made in Sweden in the 1990's, with a mix of charter/voucher schools. Increased PISA scores on the short term, and then progressively regressed with the times. However, the Swedish state got to spend less on education at the primary and secondary level, and was able to cut taxes.

I spent my 8th and 9th grade years at an arts charter school in Toledo, OH. It was a good experience, but they focused far too much on the arts and failed to teach students the important skills they needed in college or outside of school. I had to in home teach some college age friends the basics of writing a proper essay because the arts school failed to do so while even the failing public schools could manage to teach such. (May I emphasize this was a failure of the curriculum not of the teachers- they were some of the best teachers I had in middle and high school.)

John Oliver, really? the threesome joke with the children? Nice job taking a representation of being a good mom and putting your children before any personal gain OUT OF CONTEXT, and turning it into something repulsive. Your speaking about education while doing something that us teachers despise - taking information out of context for your own personal gain. You're an idiot.

Actually, Harambee is not at all misspelled. Whereas the joke refers to the Cincinati Zoo and Botanical Gardens gorilla whose name was Harambe, Harambee is a Swahili word whose meaning translates into "coming together", or literally, "all pull together". IMHO, it shows poor taste misrepresenting the meaning of the word and by extension misinforming the audience for the express purpose of making a punchline out of their misconduct, as deserved as the dis may be. Love the show though...

Sounds like a lot of "take the money and run," biznose. Actually, take my tax money and run. Take everyone else's tax money and run? Smh. Aren't these biznoses going to end up being just as regulated as public schools? Reinvention of the wheel?

Maybe we could just do something about public schools. Has John Oliver done any segments about public schools?

You might think that a public funded private school might have more critical thought happening.  But I guess some people think that getting public funding for something private means easy street for them.  There is a sense of living up to your worth that is more than relevant here.  I fail to see where that never applies.  Isn't there a set of standards somewhere that can be applied regularly, facilitated by someone, anyone, who can work with the school cooperatively as a check and balance, rather than just slam the school shut when an audit reveals their misuse of funding?  I agree this clip didn't talk about charter schools that work, and those I applaud, as long as they are meeting those standards.

I've been in a charter school for 9 years, honestly I haven't noticed anything wrong. Since I've never been to a public school, I'm not certain, but from what I've heard public schools are much worse. There is more school drama, bullying, and the classes are worse. Also, my school teaches Spanish at such a level so that when my friend moved to a public school in 7th grade she had to take high school Spanish classes

I went to a Charter Academy in Idaho. Aside from 5-6 hours of homework daily, it really did help me advance at an earlier age than my public school counter parts. In 7th grade we were reading Greek tragedies, The Odyssey, The Iliad, and learning Latin was a requirement. True story: when we were made fun of (uniforms, nerds, etc), a rhyme was developed: That's alright, that's ok, you're gonna pump our gas some day! Oh... misspent youth developed in a competitive society...

Charter schools are a scam. The results are no better than public school, administrators get rich off of tax money, and all the while, public schools get dragged down.

If ANY Charter school is to be accepted and be successful, it has to have the same oversight as the public schools, and the Charter school has to demonstrate what is different about it's education techniques that would make it a viable alternative. If they can't accept those two parameters, it's a scam.
