FORMER PRESIDENT CLINTON: "LET'S DOUBLE CHARTER SCHOOLS OVERNIGHT"
charter schools fail, they are shut down. When public schools fail, they stay in business, keeping our children in failing schools. President Clinton's thoughts have been duplicated by several other Presidents including President Obama.
PBS.org has a fascinating article aimed to show the unaltering need for good charter schools in our country. Several economists, professors and educators speak their mind about the need for charter schools like Horizon Science Academies (so-called Gulen charter schools). Accomplishing school integration, improving school efficiency, and schools that are better innovated and meet the needs of diverse students are just three of the many reasons the intellectuals give on the need for school choice. Thus proving the point that we need Horizon Science Academies. Leave the educating of our students to those who want to be there and can give our children the education they deserve. Scare tactics will only work on those who don't do their own research.
Check it out, it's a great read. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/vouchers/choice/choice.html
