CHARTER SCHOOLS RISE TO THE CHALLENGE Jackie Goldberg argues that “co-location hurts enrollment because charters lure families away from district schools.”
Well, of course! Since they offer a better product, they do indeed lure families away from failing district schools.
Due to pandemic-related issues, declining birthrates, inferior education, radical curricula, etc., government-run schools are bleeding students. Whereas traditional public schools (TPS) had 50.8 million students enrolled in 2019, the number had shrunk to 49.4 million one year later. The federal government now projects that public school enrollment will fall even further – to 47.3 million – by 2030, an almost 7% drop in 11 years.

APPARENTLY NEW YORK CITY HAS A REAL ZOMBIE PROBLEM:
WHILE I HAVE NOTHING BUT CONTEMPT FOR THE EDUCATION ESTABLISHMENT, THESE CHARGES STRIKE ME AS A LITTLE MUCH. Pretty sure my parents would have asked for an apology and that’s it, unless of course they thought I was misbehaving in which case they would have supported the teacher!

THE UNION MONOPOLY IS IN TROUBLE IN FLORIDA Why should an unwilling worker be dragged into a collective bargaining agreement? Those who don’t want to join a union should not be forced to be a part of the collective bargaining unit at all. They should be free to negotiate for themselves, and not be required to have anything to do with a union. The idea of a “members only” union is fair to both sides, but it is invariably reviled by monopoly-possessed union honchos.
Since 2018, courtesy of the Supreme Court’s Janus ruling, no public employee has to pay a penny to a union as a condition of employment, and workers have been indeed leaving. The Mackinac Foundation’s Jarrett Skorup recently noted, “Public records requests to government entities show that more than 20% of workers nationwide have withdrawn from union membership. In short, around 1 million people who work under collective bargaining agreements have exercised their First Amendment right to decline union membership.”
