Claim1- Charter school have not been a good plan to create equality in RI
- the Cumberland school board found in the current school year they where spending $2.06 million dollars to blackstone valley prep to cover enrollment in the school from their town.

Claim2- students should be mixed economically just like they were mixed racially by the courts in the past.
- desegregation does not speak to drop out rates that hover near 50%for black and Hispanics high school students
-The average white students attends a school that"s is 80% white while 70% of black students attend school where nearly two thirds of students are black and Hispanics.
Claim3- everyone benefits when rich and poor kids are mixed.
- Cities with better attendance have higher test score. If we send students with good attendance, to other cities with bad test score other schools would get better.

Should RIDE create a plan to encourage greater economic integration in our schools?
Claim A: When the government gets involve, bad things happen
Today a high court with a conservative majority concludes that any policy based on race- no matter how well intentioned is a violation of every child"s 14th amendment right to be treated as individual without regarded to race. Court-ordered desecrations plans do more harm than good. Questions about schooling should be left to communities to solve. Courts are powerless to combat prejudice. Schools should not be used as battle grounds to address inequality and discrimination.
Claim B: Parents should be allowed to make decisions about where to send their kids
In a series of cases in Atlanta, Oklahoma City, and Kansas City, more frustrated parents, blacks and white, appealed to federal judges to stop shifting children, from school to school like pieces on a game board.
Claim C: We are already doing things to improve education for individual in RI
Providence does not need to create a plan to encourage greater economic integration because we have charter schools that are single most cost-efficient way to help. Providence does not need to improve education in RI because we support dual language immersion.

1.Lincoln ran similarities number and found that in fiscal year 2015 the cost of charter school tuition amount to $2.3 million dollars with saving only $300,000
Research has consistently shown that the relationship between income and academic achievement is linear across a large sample of students more income leads to higher achievements.

2.Desegregation does not speak for dropout rates because for the past 55 years the black and Hispanics dropout rate (55%) has been the same and has not changed .

3.Charter school is not a good plan to create equality in RI because in charter schools there are usually smarter and people with more money and if we put not so smart poor kids with them it can cause maybe to lower class kids to get bullied.

4.Everyone benefit when rich and poor kids are mixed because low income students perform better when they attend affluent elementary school instead of one with higher poverty rate. After seven years the children in the lower poverty schools perform 8% point higher on standardize math tests then their peer attending the higher poverty schools. And it is also a chance to give low-income students a chance to attend middle-class schools.

5.Students should be mixed economically because its stops desegregation and weather its mixed with other people or not they will always be mixed.

1.Doing more harm than good?
2.The questions about schooling should be left to the communities such as parents should be able to be concern of the school their child attend to, also to be able to be concern and be freely to ask questions such as test score of school, the neighborhoods that surrounds the school.
3.Charter schools are most cost- efficient way to help ell students. Charters not only are cost efficient but they have flexibility and narrowly focused programs where the ELL students can take advantage of. It is even affordable to providence cash- strapped city.

1-If the government does not get involved, good things won"t happen either. For example the government has not been moving kids around school and there is still inequality in RI.
2- Parents should not always make the decisions where to send their kids, because they"re going to want to send their kids to the best schools and then schools will be overpopulated.
3- special ed programs and ell programs are helping individual students out but, its not helping the school.
