Recently, the debate over whether online charter schools are competing too much with the public school system is again raging due to Trump's appointment of a certain secretary of education who is favorable to online charter schools. Will online charter schools eradicate the funding that is in place for public school students? Is the online charter school movement effectively defunding the future education of students who choose to remain in the public school system?
Would you listen to Public School Debate again? Why?
Yes, it was entertaining and included a good discussion on how charter schools are affecting public school funding. It is a short, informal discussion that reminds me of a radio talk show.
What did you like best about this story?
The narrator is informal and I like his laugh.
What does Locust & Honey Publications bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He cares about his subject matter and tackles it from a different angle.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
Very few people are actually engaging in charter schooling. Only .5% of the population chose this method of education for their children as of 2015. That is a much smaller number than I thought. Also I didn't realize that most charter schools are non-profit.
Any additional comments?
Family friendly. No swearing.
