I'm sorry, but this is a total strawman. The best school in my area is a charter that a bunch of really smart Muslim dudes set up with a strong focus on STEM and no sports programs to save money and focus 100% on academics and the arts. Admission to charters in South Carolina is 100% by open lottery. People can attend the lotteries and they are live-streamed. The diversity is in line with the community at large, so the charters are 20-25% black.
I'm trying to send my boy to the Mandarin immersion charter school. That one is also massively oversubscribed in the lottery and we didn't get into PK. You've simply been brainwashed into an anti-choice position by your years of service to the public system. Like any monopolist, you want to advocate for the maintenance of the monopoly.
I told you I have no problem with open enrollment. It has been successful. Kid wants to go to a suburban Milwaukee school district instead of his present district, he can go. As to vouchers, since you are a big advocate for a private sector approach, then you have a choice. Not happy with one product, choose another and pay for it. Our Nation was founded on the principle of free public education for all. We all participate by paying taxes. We cannot afford to open another system, which will draw money from public education. The result will be poorly funded public schools while you elitist jerks put your kids in neat and tidy privates.
But, of course, since you begin with the premise that I am a brainwashed elite, my views after a lot of education and experience and strong commitment to young people don’t really matter.
Nice try. Who is the one who is brainwashed?
