They can't be given new parents who can afford private schools or who care enough to send their kids to private schools. I think the number one problem with public schools these days is parents and their influence on their children. No teacher can save a child alone. They're only there for academics but half the time they end up parenting children with horrible social skills. Kids in private schools don't have "better" parents but the schools do demand a much bigger role from parents, at least the ones I've been involved with. Public schools can't make those demands because they KNOW they will not be met. We have a ten percent parental engagement at my little girl's public school. TEN PERCENT. And that means ten percent have shown up for at least one meeting all year. There are kids in my daughter's second grade class who NEVER do homework. They aren't pushed to do it by their parents for whatever reason. In a private school that just doesn't happen.
First, they are not public schools. They are government schools.
Private schools eject children who are continually disruptive, or violent. If public schools did this, the number of black, and latino children ejected would be so large compared to the number of white, and asian children ejected, that a charge of racism would be leveled against the school. To defend themselves the government schools would have to prove that children were being treated equally, and the problem was with the children themselves. This would be tantamount to proving that the problem was with black, and latino children, or black and latino culture.
The leftist, socialist, politically correct culture of government schools can not allow this to happen, so disruptive and violent children are retained in the system, despite the fact it interferes with education.
The root problem, is the people who operate, and work for government schools value political correctness over education of the children.
You seem to forget that private school rules 'work' because a private school can eject anyone who doesn't - or isn't able to - follow rules.
Rules at public schools are made for everyone. 'Everyone' isn't welcome in private schools ... those with behavioral problems, learning challenges or empty pockets - to name a few.
Because. Students. Of. Public. Schools. Don't. Even. Know. Proper. Punctuation.
kids from rough enviro are tough dude, not the average i-talk-to-u-u-understand-type.
More like they don' t understand the concept that you have to earn respect before you can demand respect, and you must grant others respect before you can lose respect for them.
because you have ACLU
Children from rich families get into a lot less trouble than students from poor families. The reasons are to numerous to mention but a few are higher educated parents, parents able to afford better lawyers, and since more whites seem to live in higher class, lower crime neighborhoods, less police presence and less racial profiling.
Since some private schools cost more to attend than a lot of Universities it stands to reason that the majority of students at private schools come from wealthy or nearly wealthy families. Scholarships are offered for the needy but they curiously correspond to athletic ability for some reason. And if they have any intelligence they know that scholarship can disappear if they don't behave. Thus you have the class of people least likely to break or be caught breaking the laws going to private schools. Doesn't have anything to do with rules.
that's like comparing apples to beef:-)
Well because of money... Who would pay for that? Me? Huh... I'd rather just pay for my own kiddo then have to pay for everyone's...
Lawsuits. You can't punish Johnny without facing litigation. It's a problem for schools and, individually, for faculty and staff. Consequently, the kids that don't have training at home can't get it at school either.
