Privatizing teaching. Who thinks this is a good idea? Why?
The Michigan Republican party, that's who. As to why, I couldn't tell you. It didn't work with maintenance staff, and you don't even have to have a degree to be a maintenance worker. It didn't save money, it didn't improve efficiency. Why, it's almost as if there's something here that isn't best served by race-to-the-bottom, get-more-while-paying-less mentality.
It's going to be incredibly ironic (not to mention frustrating) if the only way we can have what we think of as a public school is to start a charter school.
