Here is a PBS News Hour segment on a non-profit program to reverse the effects of tax-funded education on the victims: students.
The program is positive. It identifies top-flight teachers in Chicago’s inner city high schools. It puts them in charge of one class period per day, where students who want to go to college attend. The program is successful.
So, here is what the tax-funded schools did not do.
1. Motivate students early.
2. Give them good teachers and teaching.
3. Separate the potential winners from the losers.
4. Provide a program designed exclusively for winners.
5. Fire poor teachers.
The program teaches students five points.
All five are good. I have some questions.
1. Why did the public schools fail to teach these?
2. Why has a privately funded program adopted them?
3. Is the Board of Education imitating this system?
4. Are all five consistent with compulsory education?
5. Why are students who reject them kept in the schools?
