Q: Should RIDE create a plan to encourage greater economic integration in our schools?
Claim#1: Charter schools have not been a good plan to create equality in RI.
"Central falls has poor kids attending to their schools and in the charter schools; they have wealthy kids attending to their schools.
"The highest percentage of children eligible for free lunch was central falls district schools.
"Many kids leave local district schools to go to a charter school and the district schools lose money "the money follows the child"
"The increasing share of charter schools is leading to segregation
"In 2015, the impact of a large # of charter on the surrounding traditional district
Claim#2: students should be mixed economically just like they were racially by the courts in the past.
"Desecration does not speak to dropout rates that hover hear 50 % for black& Hispanic high school students
"White school boards were generously financing schools for white children while leaving black students in overcrowded decrepit building with hand-me- down books and underpaid teachers.
"Local schools officials could make racial integration a priority even if it did not improve educational outcomes because it helped" to prepare students to live in a pluralistic society
"Average white students attending a school that is 80% white while 70% of black students attending schools were nearly two thirds of students are black and Hispanic

In order to improve education in RI, should RIDE create plan to encourage greater economic integration in our schools?
CLAIM
A)When the government gets involved, bad things happen
1.Court ordered desegregation plans do more harm than good questions about schooling should be left to communities to solve.
2.Courts are powerless to combat prejudice
3.Schools should not be used as battlegrounds to address inequality and discrimination.
B)Parents should be allowed to make decisions about where to send their kids
1.Frustrated parents, black and white appealed to federal judges to stop shifting children from school to school like pieces on a game board
C)We are already doing things to improve education for individual students in RI
1. According to Jecunas charter schools are the single most cost-efficient wat to help ELL students.
2.The advantage comes from flexibility and narrowly focused programs, which allow charters to tailor every aspect of their education to the ELL students.
3.Focus of efforts to improve elementary schools and secondary schools to magnet schools allowing parents" choice to move their children out of failing and most recently to charter schools.

Pro

1)lunch affects education because the number of kids receiving free lunch in school is a way to tell how many poor kids are in the school.

2)charter schools are segregating students because many white students are going to charter school while poor kids go to public schools.

3)we have to do better to bring the dropout rates down.

Con

1. They have made charter schools which charter schools give more choices to students and charter schools can improve education.
2. Either way if parents care or don't care they will always find a school for students
3. We dint know because in the past when the court got involved only bad things happen.
4. Courts don't have power over what could happen because the court cannot make the people change how they feel about it and cannot change how they think about it.

many students don't have parents that care about their education and they have to figure out how to get help. question # 3" what if the court gets involved, and good things happened" you said that we don't know because in the past only bad things happened when the court got involved, you don't have any prove that bad things happened

Con

1. Charter schools have not been a good plan to create equality in RI.
-It"s no true because any student that wants to go to a charter school can go they"re free like any other public school
2. Students should be mixed economically just like they were racially by the courts in the past.
-Your evidence talks about race it does not talk about why the court should mix students economically and how doing that would help.
