Barrier to bold reform, part two

Recently, I outlined how the charter authorization process restricts reform and innovation. Today the Wall Street Journal showcased districts in the Atlanta metro area as an example of this very issue. They note that after receiving 17 charter applications, local districts approved only two - both of which were filed by the districts themselves.

  • it is next to impossible to get a charter school approved in nashville. people complain they take away money from the public shcools. heck they are public schools and they get less funding, too. We had our third school approved and it finally opened this year. However, the district was no help in finding it a location. Get this -- it is sharing space with a catholic school.

    When need choice in education -- we need all our schools to be choice. We need the money to follow the students -- this will close the bad schools and eliminate the weak teachers and administrators.

    Thanks ==

As a rule you will run over your next rc pulverize by means of exceptionally clueless episodes. Check Cashing Corona

  • The wedding autos that supplement a current or game themed wedding, are the Aston Martin models, DB7, DB9, V8 Vantage and Vanquish or any of the Ferrari models F355, F360, F430. On the off chance that you need to have enough space to take your best man and bridesmaids along, there is the decision of Classic Daimler Limousine, Rolls Royce Phantom, Rolls Royce Silver Spirit, Land Rover Discovery 3, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport or Porsche Cayenne. check cashing
