The nation must understand that our government is spending forty million tax dollars to support the replication and expansion of 19-25 charter schools.
These charter schools will operate independently from the public schools that should receive these funds in order to operate effectively and efficiently.
These charter schools will operate under the rules and regulations, policies and procedures of our current system of education to support the profits of the “hedgehogs” that control our elected leaders.
If charter schools are capable of providing their students with an excellent education then their programs can easily be replicated in every public school throughout the country that our tax dollars already support.
Adding more charter schools only adds to the discriminatory and segregationist system of education that exists to create the profitable failure of our children.
Americans must work together to unite our public school system and to then change the intent of education so that it concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents of every child towards becoming a knowledgeable, concerned, actively involved citizen of these United States.
Our children deserve to live in a United State.
