With 80 Percent of Public School Graduates Unable to Read, NYC Mayor Kicks 700 Kids Out of Charter Schools

What’ wrong with our kids?  What’s wrong with our education system?  The man in the picture embodies it. 

New York City’s new socialist Mayor, Bill De Blasio, has kicked 700 students out of charter schools. Here are the details from the Heritage Foundation:

De Blasio is blocking four charter schools – run by the Success Academy charter school network – from opening or expanding, rolling back an offer made to the charter network by his predecessor, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, to co-locate in spaces not being fully used by the traditional public school system.
“The cumulative impact of de Blasio’s actions virtually halts charter school expansions,” the New York Post reported.
The charter network’s founder, Eva Moskowitz, runs twenty-two Success charter schools in New York, educating some 6,700 students. The city had agreed to allow the charters, which are public schools that are operated with more autonomy, to co-locate in buildings with traditional public schools.
But that all changed when de Blasio took office. “There’s no way in hell that Eva Moskowitz should get free rent,” he exclaimed.
One of the four schools is already in operation and three additional Success academies were slated to open their doors this fall. The mayor’s actions have left “at least 700 children without a school this coming school year.” Fifty thousand children are on charter school wait lists in New York.

According to a report from 2013, 80 percent of public high school graduates in New York City don’t have the basic skills to properly read or do math. Further, minority students in NYC are hardly even finishing school.

Why?  Because the socialists in the public school system would rather our children be blithering idiots instead of actually giving them a useful education.  What with the ability to read and do math, people might start thinking for themselves!!!!

    A review of the existing literature by the Institute for Education Sciences, “did not find any empirical studies that reached the rigor necessary to determine that specific turnaround practices produce significantly better academic outcomes.” The only method of school turnarounds found by a recent AEI paper to be associated with positive results was complete restructuring of the school—that is, firing the leadership and a large number of staff and starting over.

    A friend of mine, who is a product of the New York city public school system says,
    “3 words – teachers union”. :)

    “The 9th Circuit upheld the rights of Mexican students celebrating a holiday of another country over U.S. student proudly supporting this country,” Becker said.

    So glad I’m out of that place. Any sane adults, not in need of a baby-sitter, should join me. And bring that statue in the harbor with you.

    BTW, here’s a guy talking about how nice gay hotels are. He’s recounting how he stayed in one when nothing else was available.

    The interesting thing is … that hotel seems to not do business with the 26.5 non-male genders. (26.5 is half of the genders according to the Book Of Zuckerberg). Also called “wymensfolk”. They refuse to serve them, doubtlessly out of mysogyny. Cis-females might even be able to absorb that, as they are the most balanced of the 26.5 female genders; but the hotel even refuses to serve the vulnerable LGBT-female genders. And yet, I haven’t heard of GLAAD picketing the hotel.
