They shouldn't need to exist, the same quality of education should be available in public schools instead of needing to pay to get it in a private school.

@9MHQF63Working Family from Indiana answered…3mos

Yes, I can see why they can be useful but, holding such high standards for children expecting them to reach them will probably traumatize children.

@9MGWTSMWomen’s Equality from Indiana answered…3mos

No, this needs to be the place where everyone in the community sends there children. It is important for social development.

@9MG3NY7Peace and Freedom from Massachusetts answered…3mos

Yes, but the social look of being somehow more that and rude needs to be changed.

@9MBD2F7Transhumanist from Indiana answered…3mos

Yes, but not at the expense of funding public schools, and as long as same standards are used to evaluate. There's been some thumbs on the scale in areas to support otherwise failing charter schools and at the expense of public education.

These should definitely be non-profit.

I attended Catholic/private school my entire life up until 9th grade. I think people should be given a choice.

@mic_wazukiConstitution from Tennessee answered…3mos

No, taxpayers shouldn't have to pay more money for schools that their kids don't go to.

@9LW2FHCWomen’s Equality from Ohio answered…3mos

No, if someone wants to attend charter schools, they should pay for it rather than taxpayers.

@9LVPZ5GWomen’s Equality from Hawaii answered…3mos

Yes, we should pay these teachers equal to these star athletes. Then youʻll inspire more educators to the profession.

@9LQCG9RTranshumanist from Illinois answered…3mos

As long as university schools do not show favoratism toward charter school graduates. If they do, it will continue the trend of those who grew up in higher earning households getting accepted into great universities over other non charter school applicants with equal merit. Upon equal merit? Sure. Upon charter school graduation or advantages, absolutely not.

@9LDDLZCLibertarian from Michigan answered…3mos

Yes as long as they have to compete equally with public schools.

@9L7HNQHVeteran from Minnesota answered…3mos

@9L3LBMHWorking Family from North Carolina answered…3mos

No, but we should re-introduce specialized classes such as sewing or construction to public schools

@9L3C9KKPeace and Freedom from Ohio answered…3mos

yes, as long as the school is being beneficial to the students.

@9KZR98JPeace and Freedom from Kansas answered…3mos

I think by the time you get to high school, you should be able to chose what classes you want to be in.

@9KX5ZTPLibertarian from Missouri answered…3mos

I do not know enough about charter schools to give an informed answer.

@9KL43SYTranshumanist from Oregon answered…3mos

Yes but we should focus on improving our public schools and increasing teacher wages instead and pay teachers more than they are paid now raise the wages

@9KCPXWSRepublican from Ohio answered…3mos

I don't understand what the difference between a charter school and other schooling options are

@9KB673RTranshumanist from Minnesota answered…3mos

Yes, as long as standardized test scores are non-inferior to scores from nearby public schools

@9K23DPMDemocrat from California answered…3mos

I do not believe that tax payers should have to fund the education of children that do not belong to them. The only people that should be responsible for funding preschool & k-12 school is the parent of that child except for circumstances such as foster children or children that have been abandoned.

@9JVX4LYConstitution from North Carolina answered…3mos

@9JM86VBLibertarian from Virginia answered…3mos

Yes, parents should be given money out of their own taxes to pay for their kids to go to the school they wish.

@9JM4XP2Veteran from Ohio answered…3mos

Yes, but only if public schools are allowed the same privileges, like the ability to quickly and easily expel students for repeated and/or serious misbehavior.

@9JJDCQJDemocrat from Wisconsin answered…3mos

If it is not religious, then yes. If the lessons are taught based on religion: No.

@9JGY4KKSocialist from New York answered…3mos

@Ben-BusiekLibertarian from Oregon answered…3mos

Yes, but only if they are non-profit, or we institute a voucher system.

@9J7YP58Veteran from Florida answered…3mos

Vouchers should be given for school attendance. Families should be able to choose the best school for their situation. If the school is out of your zone, you should have to provide your own transportation.

@9J5V5SYRepublican from Idaho answered…3mos

Teachers should not be paid more necessarily. They should be not required to pay out of pocket for supplies. If the schools were better funded the teachers wouldn't feel the bite. School should be standardized and improved. Bring back homework. Bring back the idea of holding your kids back or them failing. Bring back the requirement to pass a class with a certain grade. Hold the kids and their parents accountable for doing the work to make the grade. No child left behind is asinine.

@9HWNYY7Constitution from Wisconsin answered…3mos

Yes and more schools need to be privatized and parents should have more school choice

@9HVQZ48Republican from Texas answered…3mos

I believe parents have the right to send their children to whatever school program they want.

@9HRWVW7Peace and Freedom from Indiana answered…3mos

I don’t know much about this topic and therefore do not have enough information to have an educated opinion

@9HQBSTMLibertarian from Wisconsin answered…3mos

@9HPGYDSVeteran from North Carolina answered…3mos

Yes, but not at the expense of public schools funding, and only in locations where school systems demonstrate poor performance

@9HNZFFYWomen’s Equality from Kansas answered…3mos

Private schools are fine but our taxes should not pay for them. Also both private and public should give the same good quality education. Teacher wages should also be increased

@9HLQGTHWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…3mos

Yes. Some of us have very clear pedagogical wishes for our kids that fit our philosophy just as much as we have freedom of religious choice.

@9HL7VMCPeace and Freedom from California answered…3mos

@9HGRRGZTranshumanist from Virginia answered…3mos

@9HHBSL3Democrat from Nevada answered…3mos

Both public and charter schools need to be improved and having to be accepted into a private school should not be a thing, if a student wants to challenge themselves and go to a harder school they should have the freedom to do so.

@9HF46KVDemocrat from Wisconsin answered…3mos

it depends. we should definitely focus on paying the teachers better

@9HD9F25Women’s Equality from Nevada answered…3mos

No, keep the funding in the public school system, and work on making the system equal across the nations. Take the regulation out of the hands of the states and regulate it at the federal level. This is how we stop educational oppression.
