You've yet to answer how they're outperforming.
You say they just kick students out, where's the beef?
You've yet to provide any alternative to the status quo.
It's time to progress past the archaic system of education we have now.
Yes I did. 1) I pointed out over all they are not. 2) I pointed out that by being selective, removing problem children, they should be out perfroming. In fact, they should be wildly out preforming. That they are not, with that advantage is very disappointing and suggests strongly that they are not a solution of any kind.
You have a weird definition of the word "not." The fact is people are working to change education as we know it daily. I've even linked a video that discusses a different direction that is far more radical than charter schools as it changes education fundamentally, from teaching batches and the factory mode to individual and collaborative. The only people stuck are those who only see running away as an option.
We also need to return respect and discipline to the classroom. No more letting the inmates run the asylum. As a people we need to stop demonizing teachers and degrading education, and promote both. Education has to matter to students, and parents, and not just papers but actual learning.
