    Many NJ School Districts Must Cut Summer School To Save Money - New Jersey 101.5 FM

    Should parents be charged a fee?

    How many of the parents have the money? And how many simply do not give a damn whether their kids get an education?

    What about the summer classes for the students that have special talents? Does or did New Jersey have any of those?

    The dropout rate for those with an IQ of over 120 is about the same as the dropout rate for those with a 90 or less IQ.

    And, in the end, does anyone in this nation actually care as to whether most of our kids graduate ignorant in almost every sphere of life, and totally ignorant of science?

    Yes parents should be charged a fee. BIG ONE.The students had all year of free education to pass a class. If the parents cared about their children they would be helping them along the way. Making parents pay for summer school to have their child either pass the class or be held back is their problem and fair.

    A lot of districts only send the kids that didn't pass the yearly Standarized Test to summer school.

    Gotta bring up those test scores to get more money!

    I had to go to summer school between 8th grade and high school, for algebra. It still didn't take.

    Pay the fee and either dock the kid's allowance or take it out in sweat equity.
