This is why I don't want my husband to get a motorcycle. I completely trust him- it's the other idiots on the road I don't trust!
So what does this charter school offer to students that the local schools, which it took money away from, did not? I mean, besides being one of the lowest 5% Title I schools in the state. But don't worry- after this charter school gets rejected by the local county and the state DOE for all the reasons listed above, the politically-appointed commission created by the recently passed Amendment 1 will probably approve it. Just like the value menu at a fast food restaurant, more choices do not always mean better choices.
Has anyone else noticed that they just met a month ago- "early December"?? So, she's been his "girlfriend" for less than a month... An Alabama Kim Kardashian in the making?!
Wishing Officer Chuck the best- he is a great guy who cares a lot about all of the kids and teachers that he works with. Not to be rude, but I hope they nail that Ruff kid to the wall for this!!
I hope you did not vote yes without investigating the answers to these questions first...
You are correct about the admissions process. However, if it is a public school, federal law requires that they provide accommodations for special education students, according to the student's 504 plan or IEP.
Kevin- Any time you want to come in my classroom and teach physics, you are welcome to. By the way, I WORK for a charter school and I still voted no to Amendment 1. Until the non-educators (aka legislators and most of the state government) stop being the ones to make decisions about and changes to education, we will not see improvement. If you haven't been in the classroom yourself, you cannot claim to know what works and what doesn't.
If a charter cannot get approved by the local school board or the state DOE, should it really become a school?! More choices do not mean BETTER choices. All you've done is sentenced good public schools to a slow death by taking more money from it's hard-working teachers and sentencing it's students to even higher class sizes.
