Right attention glass no class and what it comes to public education and unions embracing charter schools.
Sometimes that remotely classy impacts a year charter school -- Eva Moskowitz -- Not remotely fair either.
As CEO of success chartered network it has been trying to -- to get more charter schools going to -- city let's just say she's been getting.
Quite a schooling him in.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I am just trying to open up its phenomenal schools -- trying to provide world class schooling to families who often have very few choices so.
Stanley in Harlem can't necessarily move to New Jersey are.
The suburbs they don't have that option they can't even necessarily afford parochial schools so.
-- great charter school may be their only option and -- forged their cost options of the -- I its freight this is free public education class and so it's it's a great option for families of the public education has are going -- because it's competition -- that.
Well that's correct and rampant how do you do in New York but to charter schools -- -- But we're at the ninth highest of performing elementary school in the city of New York including the gifted and talented we outperformed wealthy -- suburban areas in New York State.
You do that -- they're not doing it and they should well I'm a big believer in rigor.
And having very high expectations for children I think in America generally we've underestimated.
Children to our own -- And if you look internationally at what students are able to do all over the world.
Their bar is high and our bar in America and -- so.
It's easy to come -- -- snapped.
Opinion -- him.
Well they're just threaten that there has threatened to continue Lehman's and well.
On she's gonna kill us.
Well where we we our competition we believe you've been in competition but I think there would be another approach which is.
What are we doing well why can't -- traditional public schools.
Adopt some of our practices artisans and not unions that's correct we have the freedom to hire and let people know.
-- also have the freedom to use time so we give our teachers for example.
Much more planning time.
And they teachers union contract traditionally gives public school teachers and so their traditional public schools could.
Make some changes adopt some of our best practices and they too would be offering -- students on much higher quality education.
You know you and are chatting with a break here but I've noticed that believe.
-- Hartford teachers and and and some what they have to do with it just me I mean god bless you but.
I hate I see it happen in New Jersey you know a couple of weeks ago and royal protest and it in the kids final couple of days school.
And they're out in Trenton protesting.
A governor is trying to scale back.
There what taxpayers to put their differences visited their for the kids.
When -- back from auditors of the lift themselves and report kids don't have a teacher on the next to last -- -- it just.
It just seems like it's it's.
So well look at this lawsuit in in New York -- of the teacher's union and the NAACP.
Have sued to do two things first to -- not shut down schools are failing so PS3 44 has two kids.
In eighth grade who passed the tax and yet the unions are trying to keep that school open.
Meanwhile we've got a very very high performing school that they're trying to curtail and not allow us to open this is kind of in -- -- Learn when you hear this sort of stuff -- terrorists are.
And choices choice if if a parent feels that he or she can benefit more from -- having their child.
At a public -- that might have more special resources.
For their son or daughter than let's say you know a charter school what are -- -- private academy what.
Then that's their choice but but but but someone can't take that choice -- Well I'm not parent myself -- public school parent and charter and traditional and my husband and I we want to choose.
What school works for our child and I think any parent should have that right you gotta -- kick the tires just because -- chartered just because it's traditional doesn't tell you with the quality when they take that choice away from you know.
You're not even given that right well that's what the teachers union is trying to do right now and it's really really stats -- we've got 7000 families who are literally in limbo school starts in 37 business days.
And parents don't know if they're gonna have a school for their cat.
And as a mother it's just really really it's -- know.
Well I'm hoping that the judge will be rational and and do the right thing here.
And allow us to educate kids to sound like we have seen a phenomenal schools that -- where you turn there's a great school on every corner.
All over America we need to make sure that we support the great schools and fix or shut down the lousy school.
Well -- know in this foreign city you have the haves and have nots and -- have that benefit and exposure to wonderful.
-- it with some things very expensive schools and and have -- do not and charter seems to be of a nice medium.
It's not a bad idea to give parents actually -- I'll I think it's incredibly powerful and I think the long run.
You'll see schools improving because parents have the choice and can leave.
If the school is not excellent competition.
It was works on his words -- thank you very much good luck in your -- and.
