  •  The system IS broken. (0+ / 0-)

    Most public schools work very well. But those that serve the poorest among us don't.

    As a Progressive, I consider a system that fails poor people to be "broken".

      "Most public schools work very well", but a few don't, so the entire system should be replaced by an entirely different system that leaves the few broken schools broken?  This makes no sense.  

      The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early....Well, what are we waiting for? There's no deadline on a dream!

        ...for replacing the "entire system".

        Nobody is trying to open Charter Schools in leafy rich suburbs. The goal is for Charter Schools to offer options to the families where the public schools are very bad.

        Alarmists wail that this threatens the Whole System Of Public Education. It doesn't . It just threatens a few lazy principals at a few sorry schools.
