Forcing poor kids to go to failing public schools is arguably the biggest factor in perpetuating systemic racism, but Biden appears to be more concerned about placating teachers’ unions than helping kids break a cycle of poverty.
Is school choice the biggest civil rights issue of our time?
The biggest positive factor in a child’s successful education is not the school system, the books, the teachers, the buildings or even the other students…it’s the parents. Those parents dedicated to their children getting the best education, unfortunately…due to the irresponsible parenting of other parents, most often have to leave the public school system and go to a charter school.
Poor kids can go to an ugly building, with old books and all that must take place for these children to have an excellent education, is a united parental body to insure it happens. Now seriously…that doesn’t take money. It takes dedication to this goal…period.
I don’t rely on the government and neither should any child. The parents need to be the ones dedicated to helping their children get their education…otherwise…it won’t happen and it really is that simple.
The illusion of choice. I have a choice to buy a Ferrari, doesn’t mean have have the means to do it.
School choice is a logistical nightmare and not feasible for the people it is designed to help.
Good schools are in good neighborhoods. Good neighborhoods, especially in LA, are not really that close to bad neighborhoods. How does a single mother get their her kids from Garfield HS to Brentwood HS?
