Charter Schools – looks like the left’s right
The left has finally got something right (ha), but I really don’t think they’re going to get much airtime, after their comments about national standards. Charter Schools – they’re a terrible, terrible idea.
The problem with Charter Schools is there is little or no regulation around them. Anyone can run them. You can teach whatever you like in them. Who benefits from that? Certainly not the students. It’s the owners of the Charter Schools.
Here’s what I see happening. Destiny Church and their self proclaimed pope bishop, Brian Tamaki, will create a number of these schools. They will be taught nothing that is relevant in today’s world. They’ll turn up at school about 6am. They’ll be preached to until 8am. They’ll then have Religious Education until 10am. Then they’ll have morning break. They’ll come back at 10:15am for some Religious Education. 1pm they’ll have lunch. At 2pm they’ll have some Religious Education. At 5pm they’ll break for dinner. At 6pm they’ll have some Religious Education. At 8pm they’ll have another preaching session. Finally, about 10pm, they’ll be allowed to go home.
What do students benefit from this? Destiny Church benefits from Government funding. The students get nothing. They certainly don’t get an education.
Unfortunately, because educators have decided to rant on about national standards and talk a bunch of nonsense, all people will think is they’re just on another tirade of Government abuse. Quite frankly, that’s just very, very disappointing.
