Have you seen what they are doing to kids now in DC. Arguably, the worst school district in the nation, they are stopping the vouchers.
School choice amendments was defeated, and kids in good schools have to go back to a dangerous, failing system. Including these two kids, who go to Sidwell School with the Obama girls. Why is it good enough for their girls, yet too good for these kids?
Among the students that could lose their place in private schools if the spending bill passes are two classmates of President Barack Obama's daughters, Sarah and Matt Parker, who attend Sidwell Friends School along with Sasha and Malia Obama. Deborah Parker recently told the Washington Post
that the thought of sending her children back to public school frightens her.
I am fortunate enough to live in a town with charter schools. The local school district hates them and fights against them constantly. So far the local district has filed suit 3 times to bring us under the 'umbrella' of the local district. It will give them complete power over us. It will force us to bring in the teachers' union (which we refuse to do) and other changes. We've been in the top 3 HS in the state since 2002 (our 2nd year), we've been the #1 school 3 times....why are they wanting to mess with success? They refuse to put our successes and awards on the district website, and we've gotten tons of awards.
What bothers me is that there are so many other kids in the nation that are prevented by our government the option to choose. They are FORCED to state in failing schools. We are failing them. And Congress just voted to continue it.
