The Opposition to Charter Schools

Teacher-candidates are preparing themselves to enter a field that will place staggering demands on them to outdo all previous generations in evoking student achievement. But there is a blatant contradiction that though having such high expectations for our teachers, American political leadership hasn't valued the public education system enough to adequately and equitably fund it, as though they care not a whit as to the conditions under which teachers teach and students are expected to learn.

It's as though a silent agreement has been made to let the public education system die so that, as with the sell-off of other government owned properties and agencies such as prisons, parks, and military services that began in the 1980s and early 90s, a new, privatized system can take its place.
