A Need for Transparency


The Explorer failed to note that an article in its 2/19/14 issue that criticized the school voucher system for students was written by Mr. Safier, who is/was a school teacher and is, therefore, biased about the relative success of public schools vs. charter schools. Charter schools have enabled tens of thousands of underprivileged children to acquire superior educations by avoiding failed public school systems.

There would be more charter schools if local politicians were truly concerned about children and did not succumb to pressure from powerful teachers’ unions to ban charter schools.
