How to Help Your Child with Reading
Below are some strategies that are simple to apply and that will help you enhance your child’s reading.
What are Charter Schools?There is a lot of talk about how charter schools are the solution to public schools that do not produce high scores in the NYState standardized tests. The federal government as well as the State Commissioner of Education propose and support the private initiatives of charter schools to “reform” our failing public education. A good public education is a basic necessity and a basic right for all. The public school system has a policy of inclusion--- it guarantees free education for anyone of adequate age, no matter if they don’t speak English, have learning disabilities or behavior issues. According to the law, public schools are obligated to provide educational opportunities for all. Public schools are open to all members of the community. It is best for parents in our community to be informed of what is happening with the charter and public school changes to protect the present and future promise of a quality free education for our children.
