URBAN EDUCATION: THE SUCCESS OF DC PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Brian Pick, Chief of Teaching and Learning at DC Public Schools is joined Jessica Rauch , President and Executive Director at DC Public Education Fund which has raised over $100 million for education.
Presented by FUNDS FOR LEARNING
Some 88 out of 97 schools in Detroit closed recently after teachers called in sick in protest of rodent and mold problems. There are complaints of an odious smell of mold and mildew that hits you like a ton of bricks when you step through the front doors at Spain Elementary-Middle School in Detroit. Once a school any city would be proud to have in its district. Today, it’s the poster child for neglect and indifference to a quality teaching and learning environment for some 500 students.
The gym is closed because half of the floor is buckled and the other half suffered so much rainwater damage from the dripping ceiling that it became covered with toxic black mold. Instead of professionally addressing the problem, a black tarp simply was placed over the entire area. That area of the school has since been condemned.
The once beautiful pool sits empty because no one has come to fix it. The playground is off-limits because a geyser of searing hot steam explodes out of the ground.
Exposed wires hang from missing ceiling tiles. Watermarks from leaks abound. Kids either sit in freezing classrooms with their coats on or strip off layers because of stifling heat.
Complaints to Darnell Earley, the emergency manager over the Detroit Public Schools have seemingly fallen on deaf ears.
There’s no link between vouchers and gains in student achievement.
There’s no conclusive evidence that vouchers improve the achievement of students who use them to attend private school. Nor is there any validity to claims that, by creating a “competitive marketplace” for students, vouchers force public schools to improve. In fact, the most dramatic improvements in student achievement have occurred in places where vouchers do not exist — such as Texas, North Carolina, Connecticut and Chicago. Instead, those states and communities focused on teacher quality and extra help for students who need it.
Do vouchers undermine accountability for public funds?
Do you feel that vouchers do not reduce public education costs?
Do vouchers give parents real educational choice?
Two out of three voters cast “no” on use of vouchers.

Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
Co-ed bathrooms in public schools. Mandatory homosexual education to your children. What is going on in California? We interview attorney Brad Dacus with Pacific Justice Institute.
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.
Dr. Chaps reports on these importiant issues:
