Re: “Dynamic Community Charter School is rallying parents and lobbying lawmakers. But should its model of segregating special-needs kids even be allowed to exist?

It seems like the SBE is missing the big picture here. Dynamic fits the original intention of charter schools - to creatively serve students who were not thriving in traditional schools - and by the reports of students and parents, it is succeeding at that. For the 30% of students who were previously homeschooled, being educated in a school setting surrounded by peers is a step *towards* inclusion - why is that not taken under consideration by the SBE? There is also an extremely important difference between a school refusing to include a student in the mainstream setting vs. a parent choosing to remove their child from an environment which is not meeting their needs. By the way, Dynamic may be the only charter serving only students with DD/ID, but there are private schools in the area based on the same model, and no one seems to have a problem with their existence. Bottom line, if there was not a need for the DCCS in our community because of gaps in how public schools provide for students with disabilities, parents would not send their children there.

Re: “McCrory's education budget is deceptive

Regina, the sad fact is that the NCGA does not want public schools to succeed. This is part of a national push towards privatization of public education - the intent is to make it look like our public schools are "failing" so the money can be funneled into vouchers and for profit charter schools.
