Eh I actually liked him as Chase and felt the whole story was stupid. So even if he's dumb and unprofessional at least I can sympathize with his criticism. At this point who even cares anymore and didn't Vivian Jovanni just get fired?
Low performing schools are in low income areas, which is why so many parents choose to send their kids to higher performing schools outside of their own neighborhoods. A lot of the schools in wealthier areas perform so well because of good PTA organizations that can raise enormous amounts of money for programs, so interestingly enough, good performance can't always be credited to the school district.
Something else that seems to slowly gaining support among teachers is eliminating homework and focusing more on classroom learning.
That sounds good, but changing the public school system enough to equal a good private education doesn't seem very realistic to me. In some places it's all teachers can do to maintain order in the classroom, never mind teach to high standards. I don't in any way agree with vouchers or any public money going to private education, but I don't think there is a lot parents can do take make bad school systems good (better, maybe in some cases). I'm not saying all public schools are bad either, it very much depends on where you live. Either way change takes a lot of time, effort and money and you can't force elected officials to prioritize something they don't.
