>Thursday night, New Orleans public schools as we knew them ended. With a 5-2 vote by the Orleans Parish School Board, the last remaining public high school in New Orleans became its latest charter school.

>In a room filled to capacity, replete with security, protesters, placards, chants, and shouts of dissatisfaction, McDonogh 35 Senior High School’s future was turned over to charter school group InspireNOLA. Many were outraged, some were left in tears, but it changed nothing.

>With the 5-2 decision, New Orleans became the first city in the United States to turn its entire school system over to an all-charter system. Oddly, with this vote, the OPSB appears to have ceded much of its own authority by default to InspireNOLA, although the McDonogh Alumni Association had called on the board to maintain direct control over the school.

>Groups protesting included parents, students, Friends and Family of Incarcerated Children (FFLIC), and the NAACP.

>Karen Marshall, the Executive Director with Rethink New Orleans, a group that organizes black youth, says, “I think there is an entire system of privatization to undercut specifically poor black youth in our communities. It’s the practice of giving public spaces to private organizations…it’s how you undercut the power in the community. It’s specific and it’s targeted.”

This is likely a trial run to see, in a decade or so, if education improves or flounders. The thing is, if you can't afford a charter school, where the fuck are your kids supposed to get an education? This is a terrible sign of things to come, I think.

if those children had any chance of growing up to be rich (real human beings) they wouldn't be going to school in New Orleans, so fuck them why bother educating them at all right?

so there's no compulsory education law anymore in New Orleans? how is the government going to enforce the laws when the parents can't afford education?

school vouchers, its less about removing access to schools for these people and more about removing funding from schools for these people, now they get given a voucher to buy their way into a pre-determined for-profit charter school as opposed to being given access to a publicly funded school system.

The rich white areas are likely going to see an increase in school quality, and the poor black areas a massive plummet.

Sounds like a great excuse to throw more black people into for-profit prisons.

Homeschooling but that means fewer cushy jobs for you lefties to bilk taxpayers for. Yugioh flavortext has done more for black literacy than any teacher.

>cushy job

They get paid like $38k a year in Louisiana. That's below the median income. No idea where people get the idea that teachers are living high off the hog, but I get the feeling that non-unionized workers see union membership as some kind of privilege, and instead of fighting to win concessions from their bosses (like the teachers do through unions) they just piss and moan that someone else has meager benefits and they don't have any at all.

Public unions are subversive. They have fringe benefits and are worse welfare queens than army. I'll extend such critiques to professors and cops for sale of fullness.

Good on you for at least seeing the full picture of it, police unions are the only ones left with any political power.

I worked at a unionized hotel once, it was hell, there was just that handful of people who read the union handbook front to back and were really clear on their rights to not work as hard as the phillipino kids who hadn't paid their dues yet. But idk, that feels like more the consequences of what a union can actually accomplish in the 21st century, and in Canada so its not like they're fighting to get their workers a living wage.

This is true. The most corrupt group of people well known for destroying freedom and opportunity in this country are the police, and they have the strongest unions. Honestly they are completely subverting our democracy with all their backroom deals and welfare state benefits and massive pensions and a good step to fixing our country would be busting all the teacher and police unions and forcing them to work like honest Americans for once.
