You have to be kidding. I lived in Charlotte in Mecklenburg county and I can tell you that it was NOT a good district. Parents who cared and paid attention could not stand the system there. The board was horrible. Busing was out of control. We moved before our children were old enough to be put through that system. From PBS...yeah, trust that source, will you? HA!

Jrestrepo, the report was recent. Obviously, you can't have a turnaround without having gone down. The report was not flattering on where they were when they started their reforms.

Perhaps it will be mentioned in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91DrvRk15TY

The Chicago teachers strike is over, but the public didn't win. Schools will still transfer bad teachers to other schools because it's nearly impossible to fire them. When bad teachers go from school to school, principals call it "the dance of the lemons." It would be funny if those teachers didn't slowly wreck children's lives.

The basic issue is: Who decides how to manage a workplace? Unions say it's good that they protect American workers from arbitrary dismissal and make sure everyone is treated equally.

But it's not good.

Rules that "protect" government workers from arbitrary dismissal and require everyone...
