He pointed out taking the dollars with the child to pay for an alternative school, something many places do ready.
This is fought tooth and nail by big teacher union big government types to like to spout memes like hey you selfish jerk with privilege...! >:-(
Yes, and they'd be absolutely correct. Charter schools are nothing but a way to rig the system to favor those with the juice to tilt things in their kids favor. Mind you, I'm not defending the teachers' union. Their intractability when it comes to methods to ensure that the public gets what they're paying for has been... misguided, to say the least. Nevertheless, public education is so important that everyone involved needs to just make it fucking work. Charter schools don't do this, not by half. We could start though, by borrowing a page out of the charter schools' playbook, expelling the "problem child". Too many schools have been the dumping ground for the problems created by poor parenting. Make sure mom and dad know what's at stake.
