Only thing it proves to me is that the teabaggers continue to show that they are mentally challenged.

Where did this idea originate? One of my Wife’s friends is married to a a guy who listens to Rush and company like it is a religion, and repeated this idea charter schools are for failing students.

It seems like these people see charter schools as a threat to getting vouchers to go to private schools where they can learn creationism or something. Charter schools are popping up everywhere, and parents are flocking to them.

Yeah, this is all very confusing. I thought charter schools were supposed to be the Bomb for the free market and AFP set noted in the article. But I guess charter schools are now just so very RINO.

I think the gig is up and it was all about getting vouchers for private schools as a way to continue racial segregation of schools.

Can we stop the pretense that the GOP is not the Dixie-crat party of old?

Is that a typo, and did he really mean to say that they are for families who are “ethically Challenged” or is it that Norm Hughes is too stupid even to make a good racist?

I thought I was the “ethnically challenged” one, being all lily white and not “ethnic”?
I’m confused. //

Ethnically challenged? Fuck you very much fuck face.

Wouldn’t bland white people be the ethnically challenged ones?

My white and middle class kids have all attended Summit Academy in Romulus MI. The oldest graduated this past December from college #1 in his class in Electrical Engineering. The daughter is in HS still. There is no clear racial majority in the school, it is one of only a few diverse HS’s in the extremely polarized Metro Detroit area. Our experience there has been awesome. The two oldest received free rides to college based on grades and test scores. Some people we know have asked us why we would put our kids in a school with so many minorities. well, um the world is like that, why shouldn’t their school? These would be the people who shell out many thousands to send their kids to the good Catholic HS’s in the area to keep them safe. Except the drugs are rampant in the good Catholic schools. Rich kids tend to have more disposable income ..
