Gary Chartrand should go back to the grocery store

Chartrand went from top 50 in grocery store news to running
our schools as chairman of the state board of education. Mr. Chartrand hasn’t
met a fact he likes about education preferring to go with his gut and now his
gut has steered him to making education benchmarks based on race. He thinks the
bottom line is black kids don’t do as well as other kids. But where that is
true overall it has nothing do with their ability or lack thereof and it has
everything to do with their neighborhoods.
Chartrand has never been a teacher nor worked in a school
and sadly his ignorance is now showing. Teachers don’t set expectations by race
but for some reason he feels that’s okay and what we should do.
Like he ignores the evidence showing standardized tests,
merit pay, charter schools and vouchers haven’t or won’t improve education, he
ignores poverty. Funny that’s what super rich people tend to do.
Question number one instantly becomes is this enough
evidence that those in charge of our education have no clue as to what they are
doing? Question two is and shouldn’t this put into question all their recent decisions, re: charter
schools, vouchers, standardized tests and merit pay? 
And if not why?

    2. From the privatization perspective, the only issue is the bottom-line profit margin.

    3. See #2.
