Has public education become big business at the expense of our children? Dyett High School in Chicago is just one of many public schools in danger of closing and being reopened as a privately owned institution. Some say that's good - the more private institutions we have, the more control we have over our children's education. But private schools, unless heavily financed by large corporations, tend to fail because schools rely on families to meet budget requirements through tuition. When tuition costs rise, families leave the school and this creates a greater financial burdon on the remaining families. The downward spiral effect leads to good private schools closing. In areas where coporations have taken over the schools and made them private, many local children are excluded from attending. Jitu Brown, National Director for the Journey For Justice Alliance, is working with the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization (KOCO) to insure that Dyett remains a viable public school, and is not closed and reopened as a private, corporately owned school that excludes neighborhood students.
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* Karen England fights co-ed bathrooms in public schools
* Ballot initiative held up in courts. Will parents get to vote?
I WAS AT A CHURCH MEETING MONDAY NIGHT AND WE DISCUSSED A REQUEST FROM AN ORGANIZATION FOR MONEY FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES IN AREA PUBLIC SCHOOLS. AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF: WHERE DOES ALL THE TAX MONEY GO TO SUPPORT THEM? I MEAN, REALLY, MY PROPERTY TAXES GO UP FOR SCHOOLS EVERY YEAR AND MORE AND MORE KIDS ARE BEING PULLED OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS EVERY YEAR, SO WHAT IS GOING ON?
NOW LET MY MAKE THIS CLEAR. I AM A PRODUCT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND I KNOW THAT A FREE SOCIETY NEEDS THEM TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL KIDS GET AN EDUCATION, BUT WHY ARE THEY FAILING YET COSTING MORE AND MORE? AND I KNOW THAT IT'S NOT THE TEACHERS. OH, SURE, THERE ARE A FEW BAD APPLIES IN ANY PROFESSION, BUT BY AND LARGE THEY WORK HARD, SPEND MONEY OUT OF THEIR OWN POCKETS TO HELP NEEDY STUDENTS, AND PICK UP MORE AND MORE EXTRA DUTIES WHILE THE ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF GROWS AND GROWS EACH YEAR.
WE'LL DISCUSS THIS AT 9 TUESDAY NIGHT. I'LL GIVE YOU MY TWO CENTS WORTH AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL GET US ALL THINKING ABOUT WHAT IS SO DREADFULLY WRONG TODAY. THIS WILL PROBABLY BE A GOOD LEAD IN TO THURSDAY NIGHT'S COMMON CORE DISCUSSION. SEE YOU THEN.

CAREER PATHWAYS IN READINESS IN JOHNSON COUNTY,KY SCHOOLS?

KLA Schools is an upscale preschool catering to children three months of age up to age six. KLA schools offers innovative early child care facilities along with a unique approach to early childhood education. The KLA Schools concept is inspired by cutting-edge educational philosophies including the Reggio Emilia Approach.
KLA is building a world-class franchise organization that sets new standards for excellence within the children's educational services industry.
Heavy reliance upon the Reggio Emilia Approach provides KLA with a different method than what has become the standard in American daycare and preschool franchises. Many parents who are seeking the best for their children are drawn to KLA's new system and the inspirational design of the schools. While childcare and preschool centers often lay claim to having a superior education program or curriculum, few back up this claim with a concrete, verifiable explanation. We are meeting with Roberto Ortega, CEO and co-founder of KLA Schools.
