    This is an all black inner city Charter school! Opened in '06 with only 4% at grade level reading ability, yet for the third year in a row 100% of the students graduated and 100% got accepted to and plan to attend COLLEGED!!!

    Yet let those public school teachers with their 57% graduation rate tell you they deserve a raise and measuring a teacher's performance by how their students perform is unfair!

    Well, that is a great news story, and I'm pleased to hear it.

    I'm not sure this means taechers should be paid based on students grades. A bonus system, maybe.

    Why not? The best mark for success of a teacher is what your students do! See public schools hate to do it that way because they alway look like the mentally challenged midget when compared to the Charter school!

    Charter Schools are superior in every way and the results are proof in the pudding.

    Take this school. It's inner inner city. The kids going to it are dirt poor and black. When entiring the school only 4% had GRADE SCHOOL READING ability, YET that school was able to have 100% of it's pupils graduate and 100% get accepted to college THREE YEARS in a row! The public school down the street had a 33% GRADUATION RATE and maybe a 5% going to college rate!


    Here is what Chicago should do:
    (1) Have a 5 YEAR phase out of all the public schools and replace them with Charter schools - Problems it Solves: The collective bargaining bullshit, school choice, the pensions that BREAK the school budget, TENURE, the COMMUNIST style CTU etc.

    (2) Have some overnight charter schools that work like boot camp boarding schools for at risk and behavioral problem kids.

    (3) Have a high focus on math, science, economics and business.

    (4) With the money you save from highway robbery pension plans and from full benefit healthcare plans, but that into reducing the size of the classroom, TA, after school programs and teaching tools. You know, all the stuff Scott Walker did when he took on and defeated the Bolshevick teacher's unions.

    The "Why not" is because the potential of students is not uniform. Therefore, basing salaries upon that potential would not be fair.

    This school is a success - but that doesn't mean charter schools always work.

    "Charter Schools are superior in every way and the results are proof in the pudding"

    Only if you ignore the statistics.

    You need a job in an inner city school to show us how it's done.

    Yeah, getting rid of benefits like health care will really draw in top-knotch people.

    Your version of a school is one staffed by Kelly Girls....good luck with that.

    How about a high school designed for white males? I understand, what's good for the worthless animal isn't good for people.

    What do you want to bet their SAT scores are, in spite of eight hours of education six days per week and no afro b*tches? Also, the first graduation class was 30% smaller than when in the freshmen year.

    I could create a CHARTER SCHOOL where every graduating student got into the IVY LEAGUE.

    It's easy.

    ONLY accept the very best students in the first place.

    duh!

    In a very ignorant way you have a point. This is an all black charter school, meaning white, hispanic or asian need not apply. An all white school would be picketed, vandalized, marched against, be in the national spotline, labeled as racist and shut down. Yet all black or hispanic are praised! :eusa_shifty:

    But I digress and so should you. This is about Charter vs Public!

    I guess you missed this small nugget, yet keep displaying your ignorance. When 96% of the student body enters the school at grade level reading ability your not picking the best of the best. In case you didn't know grade level is lower than highschool level. They didn't pick the best of the best. I do believe they probably selected the kids who had the biggest desire to learn and least behavior problems, but when 96% can't read at even grade level, then your assumption is INCORRECT!!!
