Charter school group spends $3.6m on tv ads attacking de Blasio


Recommended Posts

ANNIE KARNI

An pro-charter school group has spent $3.6 million on TV ads over the past three weeks attacking Mayor de Blasio — the amount candidates typically spend in three weeks of a heated mayoral primary, an insider with knowledge of the ad buy revealed Wednesday.

Families for Excellent Schools — founded by a deep-pocketed group of current and former financiers — has run a series of ads, including a heart-wrenching spot blaming de Blasio for taking away the “hopes and dreams” of 194 students by blocking Success Academy Harlem Central’s co-location plan.

De Blasio earlier this month blocked three Success charter schools from co-locations in public school buildings while allowing five others to go ahead.

What did the teacher's union spend for ads backing Mayor de Blasio? what has the Government spent protecting public education?

“They have parents believing there’s no way they’re going to find space for these 194 students,” said Zakiyah Ansari, advocacy director for the labor-backed lobbying group Alliance for Quality Education. “Do they tell them they’re spending $3.6 million on these ads in less than a month? Put that into the building that you say you can’t find.”

Charter backers counter that if the schools paid rent, the tab could be hundreds of millions of dollars over a decade.

the tax ripoff of public school money isn't? what is the national average pricetag per student per year k-12? then add in all those fundraisers to boot.

how is it a tax ripoff?

My kids go to charter schools. They are 100 times better than our usual public schools. Class sizes are small, the teachers tailor toward parental involvement more, and its less violent.

are they graduating early ?

 

charter is like home schooled right ?

 

they work on the computer at home and take tests and turn in homework at the charter school right ?

 

just think of the possibilities with internet school

 

the best teacher in the country can be every kids teacher,

no more wasting money on public teachers unions

no more school shootings

no more bullies

no more heating bills etc...

 

people who are currently teachers can get a private sector job, like tutor for example..

They are only 10 and 8. But they are getting a great education.

L.A. Charter Schools Students Learn More, Says Stanford Study
Hispanic students in poverty see largest academic gains.
By EGP Staff Report

Los Angeles area charter schools advocates can now point to a large study by Stanford University researchers to support their claim that the independent schools do a better job of educating students than their public school counterparts, particularly when it comes to low-income Hispanic students in the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Stanford’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) found that overall Los Angeles area charter school students receive the equivalent of 50 more days of learning in reading and 79 more days in math than their peers in traditional public schools.

“Results for Hispanic charter students in Los Angeles, especially Hispanic students in poverty, were noteworthy,” according to Dev Davis, Research Manager and co-author of CREDO’s 2014 Los Angeles Report. “The gains for Hispanic students in poverty at charters amount to 58 additional days of learning in reading and 115 more days in math compared to their district school counterparts,” Davis said.

The education status quo must end.

Di Blasio is falling faster than oblameo. Popularity polls have him at %35 and he has only been in office a few months. Demwits put him in and now they want nothing to do with him. Kinda like dems with oblameo.

 

The latest poll shows him at around 50%

And for those who don't know, charter schools ARE public schools, in that they receive public funding. However, they operate independently, which is why DiBlasio wanted them to pay rent to the city. He never intended to get rid of them.

No matter anyway, civil war is gonna burn this phucking place to the ground in Nov

 

there wont be any schools left

Get ready to take a real beating. This will be the most one sided victory since Caesar mauled the Gauls. Civil war will be the ghetto rats fighting over the scraps of food left after they have looted the supermarkets. If the swine leave the city they are going to run into an organized buzz saw. Bring it on.

Good. Even Democrat Governor Mario Cuomo had enough sense to kill what that leftist is trying to do.

 

Hurt poor kids to protect the teachers union.

charter schools are trying to close down public schools

 

Bulls***, but if parents are happier with the quality of charter schools, why not allow them that choice?

 

I thought your side believed in freedom and competition.

 

Clearly not.

If the charter school are such a joke why is it that the public schools never get the same grades on the tests that all schools in an area get. In Florida all Schools have to have students take a set of tests at different grades. The charter schools out do the public schools all the time. Why do you far left wingers ignore the facts in order to support your emotion based beliefs?????

 

FACTS NOT EMOTIONS

The "Social Experiment" days of Tyrone sitting next to Johnny are over. Johnny wants to learn and isn't sticking around just to be beat up by Tyrone anymore.

 

The war is over, the smart ones are moving to better schools and the 78% who don't even have a Daddy at home will be forever lost in the public screw system.

 

Too bad, so sad, but that's the way it goes.
