Dozens of states expanded school choice in the last two years, allowing more students to leave government-run schools.
But David Walrod, the president of a teachers' union in Fairfax, Virginia, says the new school choice programs are harmful.
We debate.
To make sure you see the new weekly video from Stossel TV, sign up here:
Many kids have good reasons to leave government-run schools. Such schools often needlessly shut down for Covid, and stayed closed for two years. Some indoctrinate kids. Many leave bad teachers on the job. Many spend absurd amounts of money. (Fairfax, Virginia, schools spend more than $300k per classroom.)
But Walrod says that school choice will create too many different schools, and duplicate wasteful bureaucracies.
You can watch our debate in the video above.

I believe in all types of jobs, but my problem was B vegan now’s comment he said we should get rid of the curriculum that means getting rid of real science(I like science not the leftist abomination). He, basically wants a blue collar only jobs in America. Yes, I support in changing the curriculum to be based on individual student interest not a one size fits all like we have right now. I don’t oppose blue collar jobs they’re important for both the workers and the country but we also need real university careers (like doctors and such).

@Connor Drake I don't think students should be competing with each other outside of sports. Learning shouldn't be a competition where you "win" or "lose". Everyone's there to learn, so why make kids afraid of being wrong? Being wrong is part of learning, and teaching kids to be afraid of being wrong by presenting them with a social environment where they will be ostracized for not doing as well as their peers is how we keeping getting adults who are arrogant and/or Dunning-Krugers who will never admit when they're wrong or that they don't know what they're talking about even when presented with evidence that runs contrary to what they believe.

@JJM Extremely stupid parents who cannot tell the difference between inflated grades and actual success would do that. Let's hope most parents really care about their children and not just about bragging rights. And let's hope that future employers look at a school's reputation and not just at grades, so schools are incentivized not to devalue themselves.

Almost 40 years ago, my parents noticed that most of the high school teachers in our district sent their children to PRIVATE schools. That was enough reason for them to send me there, too. It made a huge difference for me, especially knowing that the high school almost lost its accreditation in the late 80s.

Our local high school lost its accreditation a few years back for a year or so but being in rural south GA there were no private schools in the county for those that wanted to send their kids else where to do such. And the local voters put the idiots back on the school board that allowed it to happen. A lot of folks with kids left town. I work 4 counties over now and bring my kid with me so I can keep him out of that mess of a school system. I feel so bad for the kids that are stuck in it and mad when I paid my property taxes because of how they are being wasted.

As a conservative teacher I quit AFT over their political garbage. Randi violated all sorts of rules with filling teacher's emails with anti Trump hate speech. Teachers need professional liability insurance to be available separately from unions at a reasonable rate. Real reform of teacher evaluations would help this and the problem of firing the few really bad teachers. Citizens as tax payers need to clean up school board and the Department of Education.

I put my kid in a well rated charter school and I couldn’t be more happy. My 5 year old was reading and writing in kindergarten. He’s reading at a 4th grade level in first grade and doing math I don’t recall doing until second grade. He knows history and science and has never had to wear a mask or interact with blue haired lunatics or lunatics in drag. Best choice I made for his future.

Thank you, John. I live in Arizona, and since I moved here, parents have been able to choose public school or a charter school at no cost to them. When my teenage daughter would come home every day upset from high school, I found her an online high school that was local, she was able to go in for one on one schooling whenever needed, and she graduated with her diploma by 16 1/2 years old. The school she attended even had a program to start them off on their college degree, by the time she finished what would have been her four years at high school, she had a two-year degree from college as well. This is truly a win-win for all families.

Having been a teacher in both public and private school, I can honestly say I was not a fan of the teachers unions… they made a big presentation about how awesome they were, but when I needed them, they wouldn’t help me… I had a student who threatened me in front of my class; admin wouldn’t remove the student, and the union wouldn’t stand up for me, but they were still willing to take money out of my paycheck whether I was a member or not.

@mike I would agree with that in terms of the curriculum. All schools are required to adhere to the Australia curriculum. How they do it is up to them. I would also say it's a two way street. Government has a lot of control over private education through curriculum, but private education (mainly the rich, prestigious ones) have control over education policy and where money goes. The fact that the the Gonski scheme was never implemented for fear of the backlash from private education is a testament to this. The main difference is public schools have to help all students, private schools can get rid of them or refuse access to the school.

@S B What people forget is that the ability to pay for the school isn't the only barrier to school choice. Poor families work longer hours and have less access to transport. School buses serve a local area and you can't expect a school to send transport for one or two children. As to my local school, given local wealth has increased, student numbers have fallen yet the ratio of disadvantaged to strong families has increased shows something is going on. Why can't disadvantaged families, who care just as much for their children, get their kids to a different school? Why do disadvantaged families not send their child 30minutes - 1 hour from home to go to the same schools as the other students? It's transport. Then we can ask why don't affluent families send their kids to the local public school? First reason is people have been tricked into thinking private schools give a better education while, in Australia, all research points to them doing the same job for more money. The second issue is that in school choice reputation is everything. When people think of which school to choose they will type it into google. If you type the school I talked about into google you get a page of news headlines from one incident in 2007. I would say this is a big reason why affluent families wouldn't send their kids there. This is why private schools have media managers and social media managers. Looking good is more important than academics. Also, reputation is the reason why these schools refuse to take kids with ADHD, PTSD or other disabilities. Foster children in my state can attend private schools but most get refused. Schools aren't legally allowed to refuse them but they can claim they don't have the resources to help them. Some of these kids come with up to $60k of funding on top of their school fees and government payments but schools know that one bad incident can ruin their school. This again concentrates the disadvantage into public schools.

@pironfistgameing if it is true school choice than all the parents have the ability to remove their kids from the failing school not just the wealthy kids Going to a private school. Basically you could start a business educating students and they would come to your school. So it is hard to believe that an option of private publicly funded schools would be the only cause of degradation of the other school.
pironfistgameing Ай бұрын
Problem is that school choice creates these schools. In Australia we never had high crime schools. 25 years ago there was a silent campaign to get parents to go private. Now 1 in 3 kids go to private schools. As the ratio of well off families in some schools increased, the ratio in public schools decreased. When disadvantaged kids make up 50% of a school they become nearly impossible to run due to a lack of positive role models for kids to copy. As Australia has moved to private education our academics have fallen. I attended my local high school. It was considered one of the worst in my city yet most kids succeeded. We had maybe 5% of kids who were challenging. 20 years later the area we live in has more affluent families but that same school has a higher ratio of disadvantaged kids. It's a much harder school. The top education system in the world has zero choice. If you're rich or poor you have to send your kids to your local public school.

As someone who works in public education, I advise all parents who will listen to homeschool or send their kids to a private school. Public schools have nothing to do with actual education anymore. Kids will be better off if they never step foot in a public school. Our system is broken and needs to be dramatically updated and improved.

@Jakub Kieblesz You refer to Marx's strawman of capitalism because he was too dumb to understand basic economics, which is why everything he's ever said about capitalism turned out to be wrong? It's not like I have to prove that his ideas are objectively bad and incorrect, because socialism has failed every single time it's been tried, which is why socialists like you keep using the excuse that when it fails "it wasn't _real_ socialism"... I mean, the ruling class owning everything? That's not true. Anyone can start a business under capitalism, as well as succeed. That doesn't make you part of the "ruling class", and to argue otherwise is just foolish. As for any "legal" stuff with things like upholding or negotiating contracts, those things can be handled by DROs, which are private companies that would exist for arbitration. Everything government can do can be done far better and far more efficiently by private companies. This is universally true and not up for debate, as you need not look further than the increased economic prosperity and freedom that always occurs when regulations are cut and the government interferes less in the economy, as well as all of the things that used to be done by the government in various states and eventually got privatized, of which the privatization unanimously improved those services. Patents ARE created by government. Companies _file_ for patents, they don't create them. Without government force to establish and enforce a patent, then a patent can't prevent other companies from creating the same kind of product because the patent functionally becomes meaningless words on a page that don't actually do anything. Monopolies are explicitly anti-capitalist, and removing copyright and IP law doesn't mean that things can't be privately owned anymore. If I write a book and sell it, that's still _my_ property that I made and chose to sell for a profit. Private property exists independently of law, just like morality does. You're confusing the lack of copyright and IP law with public domain, which is different from private property not being enforced through monopolies that interfere with the free market. It just means that other companies are allowed to compete with you and essentially make the same thing, forcing you to do better. And if someone copying your book and selling it as though it was their creation really bothers you, you can arbitrate with a DRO and resolve the issue privately instead of using violence to "solve" the problem. Capitalism and corporatism aren't the same thing at all. They're very different, in fact. You just need to do more research instead of only consuming Marxist ideology. I'd strongly recommend looking into libertarian and anarcho-capitalist philosophy as a starting point, and perhaps improving your critical faculties by learning and practicing Stefan Molyneux's rational empiricism, as well as socratic reasoning and reasoning from first principles. "Marx said so, therefor this is correct" is not rational thinking, it's just an appeal to a presumed authority. What matters is whether or not someone's ideas check out rationally, empirically and objectively, not whether or not someone (in)famous said something that "philosophers" in academia happen to worship for some reason.

@Boyishdude The Soviet Union pioneered free education and healthcare to all citizens, so no the people were not uneducated. They were also not starving for most of Soviet history except for 1931 and 1932 and that famine was primarily caused by terrible weather conditions but after that famine the Soviet Union achieved full food sufficiency until the breakup of the Soviet Union which was illegal as most Soviet people wanted it to remain. When it broke up there was a brief period of empty selves but that only because shock therapy was introduced to transition the economy to a more liberalised one. And since then Putin rose to power and look where that ended up. If the Soviet Union continued to exist then the war in Ukraine would've never happended.

@Jakub Kieblesz Just because it takes a few or several decades for an economic system to collapse that doesn't mean that it's not unsustainable. You might as well be saying that the dollar is not unsustainable just because it's lasted for an extremely long time now, but it's gradually lost value over time because of the Federal Reserve printing more and more of it, devaluing the currency into the almost worthless trashfire it is now. This take of yours is utterly ignorant of basic economics, as per usual. The USSR's economy would have collapsed eventually even without the Cold War. People were already starving and uneducated in the USSR before and even during WW2. That's just what happens when everything is "owned and distributed equally" by a collective where no one owns the fruits of their labor. You need to do more research, and I strongly recommend looking into the Tragedy of the Commons.

That's all public education ever has been. It's designed to indoctrinate kids to serve and obey the government, not to teach them anything useful. There's a reason why you don't learn or practice critical thinking skills in public schools, and why classes that do teach those things in college are optional electives. The government and the highest classes don't want people to be able to think for themselves. Critical thinking and reasoning skills ought to be taught and practiced starting as early as the first grade, and have those things continue to be taught and practiced with gradually increasing complexity with each grade level up through the 12th grade. I don't like the idea of using force to teach kids those things, but if we start teaching our kids how to think critically, rationally and independently, our society will be far better off and much more intelligent.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our daughter had to transfer to public school after 7th grade in a Christian college-preparatory school. She didn't know she was studying material above her public school grade equivalent. (Neither did we.) She was genuinely bewildered and said to her math teacher after her first of day class, "Shouldn't we be past this by now?" The teacher said, "Oh, you're one of THOSE." The teacher looked up and when she saw her face she said, "You're serious, aren't you?" My daughter answered, "We studied this in 5th grade." She was mostly bored in public school. She had already studied 10th grade biology in 7th grade. She had been studying pre-calculus at the end of 7th grade and she had to retake Algebra in 9th grade in public school. She had no trouble studying Shakespeare because she already understood Old English from reading the King James Bible. Her teacher was shocked that she didn't stumble over the words when reading aloud in class and asked her why she could speak Old English.

It's splitting hairs over a non-issue with someone you don't even know. I mean, in the grand scheme of things, say, in 100 years, will it matter to anyone as to whether I slapped the technically wrong label on this? Even in 10 minutes it means nothing to most people.

Honest question for Teacher Unions: If my school is poorly managed, what options does my kid have for a better education?
Redstrife1 4 күн бұрын
I was told that if you homeschool with this new law or policy the money goes to the home for school supplies and educational tools. Online learning during Covid for my teenager was a complete failure it robbed him of two years of education. He went on to high school with a 6th grade education they would not hold him back even when I requested it. He failed 95% of his freshman year only now he is owing better but he will most likely not graduate on time because of public school failed Covid policy. The only reason my elementary school child succeeded was because I was right next to him keeping him on task. You can’t put a kindergartner on a laptop and expect them to read and understand how to login to zoom and that is what public school did to many children. The funding needs to go to parent of homeschoolers and wherever the child goes to learn why should a failing public school keep the money for doing nothing.

Usually about once a month, we had a day we could wear whatever we wanted if we paid a dollar. Some kids didn't even bother. There was always financial aid for kids that could keep up good grades. I was one of them. And my family had to pay for public school anyway. Vouchers need to be available to every family.

I think I can explain what he tried to say because it's a common argument against charter schools: "Trying to do better means that those schools will steak all the best students and only the bottom students with parents who don't care at all will be left in traditional public schools. Those students who are left will suffer." I've never understood this argument because it essentially says that everyone needs to have equally awful education, that improving is not completely solving the problem, so that cannot be accepted. My response is the engineer's credo: "Perfect is the enemy of good."

@Francis D Homer Kids are generally further along homeschooled because you can go at the kids pace, not the class pace. Homeschooling your own kids doesn’t cost $20-30k. Only if you sent your kids to a private school as you would have to pay for that. Unless your state had a voucher system, but you don’t get that much to pay for a private school. You know the government isn’t going to give you money if you take your kids out of school. I have no kids and yet I pay the same property taxes as those around me with kids. A large percentage of property taxes goes to schools.

@JB Dragon I can't remember where I read it or heard it so maybe you can answer this question. Homeschooled children only need three or four hours a day and do better than kids in Public School. Do you know if this is true? Also since those two girls are not going to public school that means the school don't need the money they receive. How about your brother and his wife get half of the money each year. So something like $20,000 to $30,000 would be a nice amount for them to teach their kids, take them on field trips, get top of the line computers and software and maybe a bunch of other things to help with education. Oh and a membership to the Y for socialization and gym, other wonderful things to help them learn. OK shut up Frank you know you can go all day talking about what parents can do homeschooling.

Demographics are everything. A teacher who is extremely adept at teaching a content area may not be able to handle a classroom of 25 students with 2 highly disruptive students.

These teachers unions are so full of it! I’ve just begun my 17th year homeschooling my 9 children. All but 6 have graduated thus far (the other three are in 4th, 10th, and 12th grades) 2 are still in college, 1 graduated with his master’s in IT security, and the remaining three started their own electrical business after apprenticing beginning in their respective junior year’s of HS for 3 years. They’ve only been in business for 2 years and have already blossomed to a 12 employee business. The state of our public schools is an atrocity! All of my children thus far have completed the academic requirements for a HS diploma within the first two years of HS, leaving the remaining two years for college or tradesman apprenticeship’s. There is absolutely no reason that nearly every single American student couldn’t do the same. It isn’t about how intelligent our kids are, it is the quality of our education system and their emphasis on useless “skills” like test taking, gender studies, or numerous other liberal art studies. Rather than real world application’s that can further a child in their respective future’s!

My favorite factoid about how the Teacher's Union is that way back in the day, 25 or 30 years ago, California passed a law requiring school teachers to have the equivalent of a 10th grade education. Yeah, you read that right...a well-educated 11th or 12th grader would perhaps be better educated than his teacher, potentially. The union, of course, was outraged, but they couldn't stop it. So the head of one of the unions, who of cousre has to be a teacher herself, flunked the test. She was black, so of course she sued, claiming the test was racially biased, with the union (of course) picking up her lawyer's fees. The state's education bureaucracy didn't want any part of the lawsuit of course; the education establishment hadn't wanted the law in the first place (it was enacted by referendum, bypassing the legislature, where it would never have passed) so they negotiated behind closed doors. The result was the state acted like she *hadn't* flunked the test (they'd have had to fire her if she actually flunked) and let her take it again. If you can believe this, she flunked again, and they sued again, and the state settled again. Each flunked test, lawsuit, and negotiation took some months (if I remember right 4-6) and this literally went on for years. I seem to remember her taking the test some ridiculous number of times like 17. Eventually she got enough time in so that she could retire, and she did. She never passed the test.

I'm all in favor of school choice initiatives with one caveat: I've never heard a good explanation for how special education would work in a choice program. Public schools are required to provide accommodation to every child, regardless of disability. If I had an autistic child who was non-verbal, had an IQ in the 50's, needed a paraprofessional's help to use the bathroom and required extensive 1 on 1 work with a special education teacher and I wanted to take advantage of a choice program to enroll him in a participating local private school would that private school be required to accept him and provide the same services public schools currently must provide? Would private schools have to provide the same accommodations and specialists public schools do for children who are blind or deaf?

The teachers union at the school where I work campaigned hard against school choice. They didn't want us to lose all our funding. I kept thinking, "doesn't that mean you agree that we are a worse option than the private schools in our area? If we're the amazing option you keep saying we are, then we should have nothing to be afraid of." The public schools are failing in my state, and that has lead to increased mandates from the DOE that we must follow to maintain funding. There was an amazing teacher that I had as a student. I was thrilled to be working as an aid in his classroom a few years ago and then devastated to see how the quality of his teaching had been destroyed by the restrictive mandates. He was retiring because between the behavior of the students and the mandates restricting his ability to teach, it no longer held any joy for him. I'll never forget his response when another teacher asked him what he wanted to do with his time. He said, "I want to teach! . . . but not like this." It broke my heart to see one of the most enthusiastic and effective teachers I ever had say that about teaching.

I struggled in traditional schools. Then for my sr year tx paid for me to go to a charter school. They had a very relaxed program you worked at your own pace and they had a teacher for each subject to come by upon request, and you didn’t have to go to a different classroom every hour. I powered through my assignments and got my diploma quicker than I would have a normal school and I was out in the workforce before my friends in the same grade even got to graduate. The key thing is to realize it’s not for everyone. But for those that need it. And for school districts with horrible reputations like “ghetto neighborhoods” then it forces them to completely overhaul and improve or else they fail

Although I have the opposite experience, as I thrive well in the classroom setting, I still will question why it's the norm to stuff what feels like 10 hours worth of assignments onto a student for homework and claim that it's "useful" when most of the learning should be provided in the classroom anyway. Don't get me started on the state of the English subject class with the fact that it relies purely on the teacher's subjective grading of in-class essays (who the fuck thought that testing a person's ability to make a quality essay under a short amount of time diminishes the shorter the time you give them?). It shouldn't be standard to understand the material and still be rocking Ds and Cs simply because your schedule is packed with extracurriculars, definitely not projecting my personal issues right?
