Bad legislation further exposed:
The legislation also would eliminate a requirement that charter schools have at least 65 students, said Fisher, who represents Buncombe. “Home-schoolers through Senate Bill 8 can now charter their own schools and draw resources from those charter public schools now in existence,” she said.
If you think that's crazy, check out this bright idea puppet George Leef recently promoted as a cure for our education system:
If we’re truly in a budget-cutting mood and wish to breathe life into education at the same time, we should de-bureaucratize schools by putting them entirely into the entrepreneurial arena: the marketplace.
Moreover, financing learning through the compulsion of taxation is perverse. Education should be a consensual relationship among parents, children, and (when necessary) formal teachers.
What about the Poor?
The poor would stand a much better chance in a freed education environment. If some of the most destitute places on earth manage to have private for-profit schools for poor children, then so can the United States, especially if the shackles were removed. Of course, there would be far fewer poor people in a freed society.
And these guys have been granted special access to our lawmakers, and they're stepping up as "trainers" of our school boards? North Carolina isn't just heading toward a third-world socioeconomic formula, it's moving into Bizarro World.
