After Reading dianeravitch For More Than a Year…

I’ve met some goodhearted liberals who are afraid of public schools.

What do I say to them?  I thought it was just upward snobbery that fueled the charter fire, but many liberals  are loathe to expose their children to the drug/gang culture they believe to be rampant in their public schools.

I haven’t managed to find a response to them.

Are all private schools like for instance all-girls private schools charter schools?

 

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
