Charter members

Read between the opposition’s lines

This article was published August 18, 2017 at 2:44 a.m.

This week, the newly re-formed and reconfigured Charter Authorizing Panel was hard at work reviewing and voting on charter proposals for schools around the state. As the singers used to say back in the 1960s, and as Arkansas' motto suggests this very day, power to the people, who should rule. Especially when it comes to education.

I've never seen so many sentence fragments in an editorial.

The editor asks that we "reason together" then doesn't heed his own advice. Same old message erupts: charters good, public schools bad.
No research, no data, no balanced comparisons, no admission that charters are getting rubber-stamped by the Walton-picked board members with no proof submitted by them regarding their comments and performance. Just empty promises and a lot of Walton money. Perfect combination for an editor who specializes in writing hit pieces for his masters.
Just remember that charters are nothing more than businesses seeking to profit from your children, scamming the taxpayers, playing with a stacked deck, often failing or refusing to educate those most in need, and some allowed to continue raking in the money even though they fail year after year after year despite all their advantages.
Meanwhile LRSD schools are increasing their scores and the State Board refuses to let parents and the community have their schools back. The Waltons wouldn't like that. It stops their plans to steal children for their own profits.

When the editor asks you to reason together he really means just agree with me and don't look at what's really happening with public schools and to public schools.
