In an article written about charter schools by Sara Roos for City Watch entitled, Charter Schools: New Face of Segregation, Ms. Roos comments, “At the same time the very process of school selection siphons highly involved families away from public district schools.”
It is unclear how knowledgeable Americans were convinced that opening charter schools was the answer to a failing system of education.
If a school is not properly educating its students, you don’t open another school within its walls and make families compete for space in the better school, you simply make all failing public schools comparable to successful private schools by emulating their educational processes and procedures.
Unfortunately, what is logical is not profitable.
Making Americans compete for an excellent education is profitable on every level.
The “hedgehogs” profit from the creation of a separate, not equal, system of education that uses fear, retribution, and punishment to control both the successful and the unsuccessful.
At the highest level of educational success, the fear of failing college entrance exams, that are designed to fail a certain percentage of students, motivates “middle class” families to push their children to ignore the standardization of the system and learn what is necessary to achieve a high score on the SAT’s.
At the highest level of educational failure, children are classified and families are motivated to place their children in the social services system where they become afraid to contest a system that has the power to refuse them their basic needs.
Charter schools are a cheap, easy, and lucrative answer to a growing problem in America, unity.
War and the common core redirected the focus of the American people away from humanity and towards capitalism.
When we provide every child in America with a free and public education that is developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential and committed to discovering, developing, and directing their individual gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged citizens, there will be no need for charter schools and we, the people, can again concentrate on becoming the United States of America.
