Since I choose to primarily home school my children, I often feel reluctant to condemn even a small part of the public school system. Most colonial parents apparently had no trouble teaching their children these skills. Even though the schools do their best to work with these kids, they understandably fall short. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act protects the civil rights of students with disabilities by guaranteeing their right to a free and appropriate public education.
Of course, this adds yet another layer of potentially violent children who teachers can’t remove from class. These policies are ineffective, disproportionately hurt Black , Latinx , Native American , and Southeast Asian and Pacific Islander students , and can serve as the entry point to the school-to-prison pipeline.
The entire show is controlled by state and local administrators and the employee unions in order to benefit themselves, not the public or the children. This district has more that seventy thousand employees and has its own police department for the safety of their students.
The study tested 20,000 home-schooled students on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS). This would ensure that both the federal government and state governments do their part to progressively and equitably fund public schools while still ensuring that no child gets less per-student funding than they do today.
We offer three full-service community schools at Gage Elementary School, Riverside Central Elementary School, and Rochester Alternative Learning School. These professional educators were not expecting to find three-out-of-five elementary, middle, and high school students, in DC, to be behavior problems.
