Why are we in such a hurry in Tennessee to adopt something that is wrecking public schools in other states?
Didn't I read in the other article that it was a republican that changed his mind and voted no because he didn't like the way that things were being handled? How quickly it was rushed to vote without discussion? Isn't that the way they have been doing this in this session, squashing all discussion? Not even hearing any questions on the bills? So instead, blame the democrat?
That doesn't make sense. It, GH, didn't want to work within the system, it seems that something wants to use them to change the system and make us believe that they are needed here. We have charters here already, some better than GH. What does not make sense, to me, is this heavy handed response for this one out of state school. I haven't heard, because of a repeated history of turning down charters, I have heard because of turning away this school. We have gone through almost a generation of kids that were taught to test well, not taught the skills to live life.
So, what do we think about vouchers? A way to help kids or a way to siphon money out of the system?
Parents had options before great hearts came to town. But since now this charter has bestowed their attention us we have to tear down our system for them?
But it is being treated as if we should just roll over and take it from GH. Not only are there other options here, but there were other charter schools that were turned down. I don't read where they are threatening to lobby for a "decider" to override the school board. Why hasn't Huffman mentioned those schools? It has been all about one school. Why does it seem as if GH been promised something?
