Sanders calls for end to for-profit public charter schools

Sen. Bernie Sanders is calling for a sweeping overhaul of publicly-funded charter schools. Sanders wants to ban for-profit charter schools and halt the creation of new charter schools while imposing new rules on the existing ones. Supporters argue charter schools serve as laboratories for innovation in education that can flourish without the bureaucratic constraints of traditional schools.

Why? Because public schools should have no competition?

Absolutely not! These charter schools are turning around bad communities for the better.

Public schools have been repeatedly indicated as being a source of many educational woes. Over time we have pumped more and more money into public school systems with a largely negative return. Maybe, just maybe the problem is more complicated than politicians like BS make it out to be.

Removing alternatives to the propoganda filled public option is common sense for communists.

Why should teachers make more than the average BA? They consistently are below average in academics—in other words, it’s the bottom of the class going into education. Public schools should be scrapped, education degrees eliminated, and public unions outlawed., and let schools start to actually compete with each other.

You mean the for-profit charter schools that provide children whose parents can afford them with better educations, thereby making them more useful as adults? Nice, Bernie. The blacks can't afford it, so nobody else can have it either. I swear to fucking God sometimes...

Kids who go to charter school have way higher average test scores than kids who go to public school. They work wonders in the inner city and control freaks like Bill deblasio and Bernie Sanders are harming kids when they call for dumb shit like this.

Big surprise. The "liberal" solution shut down what works. Throw money at something that doesn't.

As soon as I read that title, that when I knew that Bernie wasn’t really a socialist but an outright communist!

Pretty sad to see everybody in this comment section praising the scam that are for-profit charter schools. How about investing in public education and paying your teachers reasonable wages? That might get the US back into the top ten countries spot when it comes to education. Right now you're just useful idiots for the likes of corrupt Betsy DeVos.
