  2. That's fake news
     
  3. Very fake.

    Charter school lobby out to undermine parents faith in public schools, it is just going to get worse and worse.

    Probably will be headlines about public school death panels soon.

  5. I asked my cousin's wife yesterday, she is a Louisiana high-school teacher. She laughed and said that many of the Cali schools would refuse to participate with them and likely were included but downgraded for not responding.

    I found this which seems to say that they measure teacher training without reference to actual student results?

    https://thejournal.com/articles/2013/07/01/critics-slam-nctq-teacher-prep-review.aspx

    "Mercedes Schneider, a teacher and researcher with a Ph.D. in applied statistics and research methods, with a counselor education concentration, has investigated the NCTQ in a 17-part series on her blog, including a detailed review of the members of the NCTQ board. According to Schneider, there are "inextricable associations between NCTQ and the corporate reform agenda.""

    Why is that necessarily bad?
    Business leaders have complained for years about the quality of US education.
     
  7. All developed countries have one thing in common, a competent state run educational system. Without this functioning well a social class system becomes the norm. The same as Colombia, Venezuela, South Africa, you name it. Tier two/three nations. With three tier citizens, no chance of moving from you social class.

    The corporations want to get parents fearful that their kids will only get sub-standard education in a public school. This is propaganda to engineer doubt and undermine state run education for the profit of men like Betsy DeVos' brother who founded Blackwater.We know that private does not necessarily mean good, standards slip as evident with many 3rd level private universities.

    Do you see why this could be a problem for society? You know, as a conservative.

    California has some of the best public schools and probably some of the worst..In parts of Silicon Valley some of the white parents wont send their kids to public high school because they can't compete scholastically with the asian and Indian kids.
     
  9. It's been a good year for for-profit education. I guess I'm supposed to believe there are no smear lobbying campaigns against their main competitors.
