School Choice


SCHOOL CHOICE - Few things are more precious in life than a solid public school education and dedicated teachers, administrators and staff. I see those type of educators in Mashpee, trying to make schools better for all and improve measurable performance. The problem is that in some Massachusetts communities, too often urban, but not always, local public schools are not doing well, under performing their peers, state wide. That’s why I am an advocate for school choice like public charter schools, when traditional public schools fail the youth at the most critical time of their lives. Will the education they receive be seen as a value and a good investment of their time, or a farce, perhaps turning them off for life on acquiring the skills and knowledge they need to compete? Will more bad schools keeps another generation of disadvantaged kids out of the mainstream society? Unlike Senator Elizabeth Warren, I didn’t walk away from the thousands of kids, many who are black and Latino, languishing on a charter school waiting list. I did the right thing and voted for the expansion of charter schools, not swayed the anti-charter scare tactics. Sadly, Warren’s choice to side with teachers unions over some of the neediest of children in the Commonwealth. Liz is an advocate only when it is easy. And, those under educated kids year after year on the fringes, some of them will cost society again and again. And, unfortunately they do.

    School choice is very important. Some of those traditional schools do not provide very good education or help children individually. They get lost in the masses and you have kids that are not pushed and motivated to learn more and you have those that don’t really learn the material and pass by not receiving the education they need to excel in life. I like where Allen Waters is going with this. Its very important to educate our youth. They are the future.

    The second thing that makes Arizona schools one of a kind is how much they subsidize (or rather don’t support) schools. Arizona positions 48th out of 51 (incorporate the District of Columbia) as far according to student uses the nation over . On a relative premise, the State of Arizona just does not give its schools as much fiscal assets as different states give to their schools. Furthermore, the hole is huge.
