Why accountability?

Why all this talk about accountability for choice schools? One example.

True enough - the legislation passed by Republicans and signed into law by Governor Doyle - without demands for lifting the cap helped us weed out a bad school.

Bad schools are not limited to the MPCP.

MPS set the terms of the contract to create New Hope Institute of Science Technology... and that looks like it is headed for the same fate (http://www.jsonline.com/news/metro/jan06/387093.asp)

What we don't know is what goes on in inside of MPS and how they bury problems in their own schools.

I've never heard of reporters being kept out of a MPS school. Some voucher schools refuse to let them enter at all. And I've never heard of a MPS school not having a curriculum in place or textbooks for kids on the first day of class. And student records are kept properly at MPS schools. Not the case, of course, at some voucher schools.

Are field trips to McDonalds on the menu at any MPS schools you know of?

The fact that the school is being closed shows some sort of accountability. These examples of schools that are closed being proof that accountability is needed don't make your point. Now if after the purchase of luxury cars and inflated student numbers along with no text books resulted in these schools continuing in the program you would have a case.

But of course these schools won't be kept open there drop out rates aren't high enough and there aren't any union employees there.
