In recent years, “No Child Left Behind” books have gained in popularity, and with good reason. Everyone agrees that our nation’s public education system is not working efficiently, or nearly as well as it could be. In particular, the battle is taking place in the states, where the No Child Left Behind Act has been signed into law by the Obama administration. The National Governor’s Association has even come out against the act, claiming that there is no evidence that it will improve academic standards. So which best describes the reaction in the South to Brown v. Board of Education?
=> which of the following economic goals focuses on equal opportunities for education?

Over the past few years, as more parents have lost their jobs and the need for educational services has gone down, people across the country have turned their backs on public education. At the same time, African-Americans, who are statistically the most educated group in the nation, are being disciplined in school for their grades. Students are being barred from the classroom at the drop of a hat, and even sent to extra classes. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Many states are now requiring students to get specialized instruction outside of the classroom as well. This means some children are going to school longer hours per day than others, and they are spending less time interacting with other children.
In many cases, standardized testing is used to measure how well kids are doing in school. Even though the schools themselves are not doing very well, they are held up by state laws and requirements to put a certain number of students through these tests. So what happens is that the schools are held up at a “one measure” quality, which means that one standardized test will tell whether a child performs above or below average. This in turn leads to less funding, less resources, and in some cases, to having to close the school.
As stated above, in many states the schools have already closed. What does this mean for families who want to send their children to those schools? Well, if you want to find out which best describes the reaction in the public, the answer may surprise you. It means that in many instances, public education has deteriorated.
Now then, when looking at which best describes the reaction in the public, you really have to ask yourself, “If public education was such a disaster, why do people still go to school?” Most people go to school because it provides a quality of life and opportunity that no amount of private education can provide. The reason that public education has been so abused is because of the money and power that charter schools represent. Parents are willing to pay a lot of money to go to charter schools because they feel that there is nothing that could possibly compare to the quality of education that they can get from a charter school.
In essence, charter schools are scams. They are taking advantage of the fact that most parents in America think that public education is better than anything else. This leads to other parents being convinced that it’s their responsibility to send their kids to these charters even if they don’t really believe that it produces the best education.
So, why is there such an abuse of the public education system by charters? Charter schools receive no funding from the government, so they can and will educate their students cheaply. Also, they have very little regulation. So what happens is that a teacher, who happens to be a bad teacher, can get a charter and start instructing students in ways that he or she doesn’t agree with. This is why some parents are suing these charters for teaching their children in ways that they don’t agree with.
So the next time you want to send your child to school, you may want to ask yourself which best describes the reaction in the public education system in America. If you don’t like the answers, then you might want to find another school. If you’re happy with them, then you can start sending your kids. Good luck!
