Charters’ good experience
Let me say a few things about charter schools, the “second” N.C. school system.
Charter schools have strict disciplinary codes. The children know if they hit, punch or bully in school they are automatically suspended. No lawsuit required. No detention. Just gone. They wear uniforms – no low pants, headbands, etc., so no competition in clothing regardless of your financial status.
And, yes, there is more parental involvement. They drive to and from school each day, they fill in for teachers during lunch and they chaperone school trips. These kids are well-educated, well-rounded and respectful. What, I ask, can possibly be wrong with that?
