Transcript of Opposing Charter Schools


Despite charter schools' good intentions in trying to implement new educational techniques, these often come at the expense of the students. Instead of attempting to introduce new, unpredictable educational approaches through charter schools, schools should just mimic the tactics of leading institutions.

Opposing Charter Schools
Poor Use of Tax-Payer Money
Studies show that charter schools cost more money
educate less students
spend money on things that fail
A 2011 study shows that charter school teachers receive little training
Expectations vs Results
Only 8% of charters received a rating of excellent or effective, compared to 63% of public schools.
Charter schools fail to outperform students in public institutions, with the exceptions of few isolated occasions.
Effect on Students
Tax-Payers are now unwilling to pay for these schools
Due to lack of diversity, students do not receive the perspective they need to become global citizens.
Students' Overview
The cost of funding charter schools is extremely high despite their poor results.

Students of charter schools are the victims of failed educational experiments performed by their schools.
