The Charter School with no classes at all…

Not worried about charters closing their doors and dumping your kids due to lack of profits?

What about charters that don’t teach your kids

Yes, that’s right.  This non-profit charter decided it could reinvent teaching and learning model and “changed the whole curriculum, brought in a model called the Big Picture where [students] had no more classes at all”…

Enjoy the story of the student with a perfect grade score of 4.0 (which is 100% in the US system), who failed her first ever class, thanks to this innovative non-teaching system….

Or the fact that they laid off the only two accredited maths teachers, so no students get any maths credits this year…

Ahhh yes, it sure does look like another great case of this innovate and miraculous system doing its stuff again…

I wonder if John Banks, Hekia Parata, Nikki Kaye or Dr Sharples would like to quote this example in Parliament at the final reading of the Education Amendment Act 2012 next week, when charters will be made legal here?

No, thought not.
