To the Editor:
I read John Hood’s article titled, “We all want better schools“ (Viewpoints, July 15-21). I am all for choice, but when charter schools do not offer transportation or school lunch programs, it gives no choice for the economically disadvantaged. The fairness of choice begins with the choices that are given.
My wife has been in special education in the public school system for many years, and I can tell you that charter schools do not offer the level of services that public schools offer.
The end result is that public school teachers have to deal with a much more demanding population than charter school teachers.
In my opinion, any scholastic comparison between public and charter schools, given the existing disparities, is meaningless.
I do not understand why John Hood seems to get prominent positioning in your paper. Is there no author with a more progressive voice in Chatham County?
