Web letter: Politicians get failing grade when it comes to fixing schools

Hoosiers should commend the politicians in Indianapolis for both their lack of foresight and accountability to their constituents. They have set double standards for education – public Education vs. charter schools.

In their infinite wisdom, they decided public education can’t be fixed. So they started funneling money to charter schools. The charter schools do not have the same set of rules as public schools and who knows how they are evaluated. Education is a very powerful way of raising a person up.

My sons are products of the public school system and are graduates of Purdue University. The public school system did its job with parental assistance.

Maybe the thing which needs to be re-evaluated is the politicians who are supposedly public servants.

It has been a few years since I attended public schools. However, I do remember in government class the topic of separation of church and state. It is quite obvious that current politicians were not paying attention then, so maybe next election, you need to vote and correct the wrongs of these public servants.

If the public school system is broke, we need to fix it with tax dollars and realize the politicians are the ones failing their constituents.

The public school system can be fixed with parental assistance and appropriate funding. Charter schools lack accountability and should not be funded with tax dollars. The politicians are the ones who are failing in doing their job, not the public school system.
