The question is, why are you and the governor so afraid to judge private schools usuvg the same metrics by which you judge public?
It's an "A" school. I can't compare that letter grade to private schools because they don't get graded.
If you want to know about Northshore High look it up. It's an "A" school.
and private schools still have selective admission, what becomes of the children who nobody wants to admit?
They must still use metrics to judge performance like you suggested earlier?

A month ago I read about a child bringing a gun to a middle school in Baton Rouge.
It was the second time that thug had done so.
10-20% of the students in failing public schools are the problem. The neighborhood schools abs sire to obtain an education and will actively prevent others from learning. 90% of a school's time and resources are spent on these students
I'd propose treating HS truancy and/or behavior issues with incarceration in a minimum security bootcamp-style facility.
Bobby Jindal is a great man.....unfortunately America has no need of great men. Most Americans prefer shallow, narcassistic liars who tell them what they want to hear. In the end.....we will all suffer for the choices we have made....and it won't be pretty. Meantime the sharks [as in our enemies] continue to stalk.....waiting until the right moment when BHO has sufficiently weakened us morally, economically and militarily...then they will administer the "Coup de grace". History is full of examples of cultures that collapsed when the people selected vile men as their leaders.
But decent men like Bobby Jindal......America have no need of them.
Not if all kids get vouchers. Let the public schools go private.
But let's just say everybody got vouchers and the only thing left in government schools were thugs. That would be great wouldn't it?? Great because the people that would like to send their kids somewhere now besides the public schools with the thugs will get too?
Are you people saying you want everybody to suffer because there are thugs in schools??
Sounds to me like instead of opposing vouchers you should be screaming for the freedom to kick them out and to quit passing them from grade to grade like you do now.
The entire problem is this mentality that we must teach to accommodate the worst students. How the public school supporter let that thing dominate their schools is beyond me.
