The Charter versus Public Debate
BCOM275
Introduction
The article Charter Schools vs. Public Schools: Which One is Under Performing takes a closer look at the realities of the charter versus public school debate. In some cities, such as Manhattan, the District of Columbia and parts of Los Angeles, charter schools are a necessary option for parents that cannot afford private schools but want a better education for their children than what the public school system can provide, according to the big screen documentary “Waiting for Superman” written and directed by Davis Guggenheim. This particular article focuses on charter schools as a whole and looks at the entire country. In the article, arguments are shown for both the charter school side and public school side of the argument. Unfortunately, very little factual data is given to support the opinions given. Demographic information, test data and other various factors used to measure performance are mentioned yet not supported, leaving the reader to wonder what is really true.
Analysis of Article
The author used three various sources, US News and World Report, Stanford, and one non-profit organization, Change.org. The sources used by the author do make the article seem very reliable. Both sides of the argument are represented in an unbiased way, but not many statistical facts are used to support the arguments. The article would seem more credible if actual statistics were used. Since there were no statistics stated, the validity of the article is hard to assess, as there is no real way to fact check. The information as presented can be seen as merely the opinions to both sides of the article.
Some logical fallacies presented in the article are that only children that are English Language Learners (ELL) or poverty level children benefit from being placed into charter schools but that the…...

Private V Public Prison

...Prevailing theories about human behavior, the causes of crime and ideology about how to address criminal behavior have always influenced how and why society uses prisons. Prisons are intended to meet a variety of social goals, including incapacitation, deterrence, discipline, punishment or retribution, and rehabilitation or reformation. Some have argued that public prisons are better at all of the above while most support private prisons. The term prison privatization commonly refers to the policy of contracting out the management and operation of prisons and jails to private, for-profit companies. Prison privatization is a controversial issue, with ongoing debate over the ethics of delegating the punishment function of the criminal justice system to private actors, weather private prisons cost less to operate than public facilities, and if the quality of security and conditions of confinement differ between public and private prisons. In 2005, approximately 200 private correctional facilities operated in the United States, housing a total of 107,000 inmates. Four companies provide more than 90 percent of private prison capacity. About 6 percent of all state inmates and 14 percent of federal inmates are incarcerated in privatized facilities. The idea of privatizing prisons emerged in the 1980s as a policy remedy to the problem of growing incarceration rates, severe prison overcrowding, and constraints on increasing government funding of new prison space.

...SCOPE MANAGEMENT PLAN INTRODUCTION Scope Management is the collection of processes which ensure that the project includes all the work required to complete it while excluding all work which is not necessary to complete it. The Scope Management Plan will detail how the project scope will be defined, developed, and verified. The Scope Management plan will also defines who is responsible for managing the projects’ scope and also acts as a guide for managing and controlling the scope through the entire project. Project Scope Management follows a five step process that makes the project successful; the five steps that are needed are, 1) Collect Requirements – this first step is the process by which we define and document the requirements needed to meet all project objectives. The foundation of this process is the project charter and stakeholder register. From these, the team can identify requirements, collectively discuss details associated with meeting each requirement, conduct interviews and follow-on discussion to clarify the requirements, and document the requirements in sufficient detail to measure them once the project begins the execution phase. . 2) Define Scope – this step is critical to project success as it requires the development of a detailed project/product description to include deliverables, assumptions, and constraints and establishes the framework within which project work must be performed. 3) Create WBS – this process breaks...

...PUBLIC LAW V Bogdanor and S Vogenauer; Enacting a British Constitution: some problems’, 2008. One must understand that most of the countries now have a written and a codified Constitution, such as the United States of the America, Malaysia, India, Australia and etc. As we know these countries are under the British colonies before getting their independence. Hence now there are only three states in the world which lacks a written constitution, namely Britain, New Zealand, and Israel. A constitution is a set of rules which defines the structures and functions of a state, particularly, will define the principle of institutions, the legislature, the executive, judiciary and the nature and the scope of their powers. Moreover, Bradley and Ewing have defined a constitution as ‘ a document having special legal sanctity which sets out the framework and the principle functions of the organs of government within the state and declares the principles by which those organs must operate’. (A Bradley and K Ewing, Constitutional and Administrative Law (14th edn, Pearson/Longman, 2007), p.4) [1]In the introduction of a state’s constitution, there will be a discovery of a preamble, for example, in the USA the preamble states that: ‘We the people...do ordain and establish this Constitution’. (Article 2 of the 1936 Soviet Constitution.)[2] This shows the society as a sovereign power. An important question that often rises is “Should Britain adopts a written constitution”? This has always...

Civil Rights V. Public Order

...Civil rights are personal liberties that belong to an individual, owing to his or her status as a citizen or resident of a particular country or community. The most common legal application of the term civil rights involves the rights guaranteed to U.S. citizens and residents by legislation and by the Constitution. Civil rights protected by the Constitution include freedom of speech and freedom from certain types of discrimination. The term privileges immunities and is related to civil rights. Privileges and immunities encompass all rights of individuals that relate to people, places, and real and personal property. Privileges include all of the legal benefits of living in the United States, such as the freedom to sell land, draft a will, or obtain a divorce. Immunities are the protections afforded by law that prevent the government or other people from hindering another's enjoyment of his or her life, such as the right to be free from illegal searches and seizures and the freedom to practice religion without government persecution. Public order means to function or act in a manner that is non offensive to the public. You can't incite someone to violence and you can't just shoot of your windows. Maintain public order is very important because crime is hard enough to stop as it is. With out having any type of public order there would be people committing crimes and bad things happening every second of everyday, so law enforcement would not be able to keep up with all the...

Charter Schools vs.Traditional Public Schools

...[pic] [pic] Charter Schools and Traditional public schools both have a profound effect on our students in many different ways but charter schools have much more of an effective way to get our Children not only through school but also through college. A large sum of students that have attended Charter schools have gone on to college receiving a 3.0 or higher. The Impact that education in Charter schools that have a college prep program is much more effective in student success than Public school education. Charter schools are publicly funded institutions that operate under their own standards of conduct and curriculum. Although these institutions are funded by tax dollars, charter schools are ultimately given the freedom to establish their own methods of operation, similar to how private schools are able to operate their instructional and social practices. Various studies and statistics reveals that students who come from lower-income families or students that are English language learners revealed higher success and performance rates in charter schools than in public school. According to the DC fiscal policy institute, the median proficiency level at the 43 charter schools studied rose from 44.2 to 50.2 percent from 2008 to 2012, while it fell from 40.4 to 36.7 percent at the 109 public schools. Charter schools serving low-income children are outperforming comparable traditional schools at many...

We have determined we will meet primarily via the OLS and in person if needed before or after class. These meetings are mandatory and only exceptions are for emergencies. In the event of an emergency the member is to let the team know ASAP if they are going to be late or absent. Failure to do so will result in a notation made on either a weekly log or forum posting/email to the instructor for consideration to rate participation points accordingly.

Charter Schools

...Name: Shanika Brooks Course: PHI-105 Date: September 7, 2015 Instructor: Turk Ciftcikara Charter Schools Every parent wants the best education possible for their child/children. That’s why it is important that they’re given a choice or option to choose the best schools designed to fit the needs of their child/children. What does “Charter School” mean? Information retrieved from http://www.publiccharters.org/get-the-facts/public-charter-schools define charter schools as “a unique public school that are allowed the freedom to be more innovative while being held accountable for advancing student achievement.” Every child deserves the knowledge, skills, character, and habits to succeed college and beyond. Charter schools will give parents a peace of mind knowing that they are fostering a partnership to be involved in some of the top-performing schools in the country, getting their child/children into college and assisting with raising the bar of endless-possibilities. The first charter school was established in Minnesota in 1992, to provide parents and students with a greater educational choice within the public school system. Children who attends charter schools are provided with options to improve educational outcomes such as higher test scores in reading and math, better teacher to student ratios and increase innovative learning. Stanford University’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes (CREDO) finds that urban charter schools are providing superior...
