A school is only as good as the people who support it. Before focusing on outside options, we need to build our public schools to be the best they can be for all members of the community.
Public education funds should be focused on education accessible to every citizen, controlled by elected officials. Privately owned corporations should never see our children’s education as a bottom-line.
“Going to school is not the same as going shopping. Parents should not be burdened with locating a suitable school for their child. They should be able to take their child to the neighborhood public school as a matter of course and expect that it has well-educated teachers and a sound educational program.” ― Diane Ravitch
