    Records show glaring faults at school with ties to Turkish charter network | NOLA.com

    The article goes on to describe classes with no teachers; science equipment that was never taken out of the boxes; teachers cheating for the students; unreported sex act in the bathroom...


    Incredible.

    Education is an important topic to me...but your post points out something I've been thinking about for some time. While a firm believer in vouchers and choice, there must be a mechanism of oversight....

    I often view the answer as being akin to the G.I.Bill which allowed returning soldiers the options of schooling...but, it seems, there are more pieces of this puzzle which must be added.....


    While education cannot be maintained the way it is, neither is anarchy the answer.

    Let anyone come up with a good idea, there is someone who will follow ten seconds later and abuse the hell out of it.

    Ha ha. You could say that about ANY high school. This was a 5 year old. Apparently the teacher who reported it was fired.
