Charter schools outperform bureaucratic public institutions

Although the website below only hints at why some of our local charter schools here in southeastern North Carolina outperform their public counterparts, its statistics clearly show that their results are superior.

In my opinion our public schools are laden with bureaucracies, and burdened with social justice and waste-time projects that compete with real education: teaching traditional reading, writing, mathematics and other subject matter important for children to become civilized, educated and potentially independent; thus, having the knowledge and skills to improve their lives.

The greatest injustice to students, parents and taxpayers in general is that public schools cost much more per student than do charter schools and have poorer results in teaching subject matter. The Roger Bacon Academy opinion piece shows that charter schools are a good deal because we pay less and get more.
