Tag: Hoon-Yung Hopgood
By JGillman, Section News
Of course after writing that last article about lifting the cap on charter schools and giving students real options in the way they learn, I discovered that next in my reading list is a story regarding the promotion of unparalleled mediocrity.
Of course the threat to the power held by school unions would drive an attempt to keep the shackles on the ankles of our youth. The minions of those who parasitically extract our taxpayer dollars are hard at work attempting to stop profit in the charter schools. State Senators Rebekah Warren, and Hoon-Yung Hopgood say Michigan charters make too much and wish to institute a constitutional ban on for profit schools:
"The ban would only affect K-12 schools, such as charters, that receive money from the state School Aid fund. Already in Michigan, four out of five charter schools are operated by private, for-profit education management organizations, according to the senators.
In these tight times, perhaps Warren should take a 100% pay cut by leaving government service.
What these synaptic powerhouses are saying, is that private enterprise could operate at half the cost of a public facility, and still be charging too much if there is a profit. The evil is not in the cost but who might benefit.
From the Progressive Bible - Jen GR 11:05 verse 2
Costs LESS, with better results, but profit made by private enterprise equals BAD.
