In January, the Trump administration announced a $400 million expansion of charter schools in the United States.
The plan would create hundreds of thousands of new charter schools, while also creating incentives for states to adopt the state-funded charter model.
It’s a radical shift from traditional, state-run schools that have a long history of being plagued by neglect and exploitation.
“The Trump administration’s plan to increase charter schools is an enormous change in how the American public school system operates, and a dangerous one at that,” said Michelle Richardson, a senior policy fellow at the Century Foundation.
“It threatens to destroy our public education system in ways that we cannot even begin to understand.
The Trump administration is a threat to the American taxpayer, and to our families.”
The plan calls for creating a national charter school grant program, and requires states to use their own local resources to operate and run the program.
The funding would be used to operate charter schools at a national level and to support charter schools operating in states that previously relied on federal funding.
But the program would not allow states to charge tuition or other fees to charter schools.
As of now, the program is only available to a handful of states, including Texas and Alabama.
This plan would allow states like Texas to use state funds to operate a $100 million charter school in the city of Austin, but that program will not allow the state to charge charter schools tuition or fees.
“The Trump Administration has done an extraordinary amount of work to undermine public education,” Richardson said.
The Trump plan has faced a fierce backlash from parents and educators. “
While it’s certainly possible to operate an institution like a charter school, the Obama administration was not willing to allow charter schools to operate within public schools.”
The Trump plan has faced a fierce backlash from parents and educators.
In a recent letter, several state officials said they would not support the plan and argued that it would only create more opportunities for charter schools that would be more focused on providing low-income children with the best possible educational experiences.
In response to this letter, the Education Department issued a memo saying that states are allowed to operate their own charter schools and that the Obama-era plan is a “one-size-fits-all approach” to funding education.
In the memo, the department argued that charter schools should not be “part of a national model” and that they need to be a “choice option” for students.
In other words, states cannot charge charter students tuition and fees and can only operate charter school centers that are not “partially funded by the federal government.”
The Education Department also said that it will not issue “mandatory waivers” for states that have expanded charter schools under the Obama Administration.
The plan has been called “an assault on children,” said Amanda B. Miller, executive director of the National Association of Charter Schools, a nonprofit that represents about 100 of the nation’s largest charter schools including Charter Schools USA.
Miller said the Trump plan threatens to undermine the public school experience for children, who have traditionally had a high level of access to high-quality education.
“There are children who are very good at math and science and math and English, but their parents can’t afford to send them to a school that charges $3,000 a month, or they can’t send them outside of their neighborhood, where the school is overcrowded, where there are violence issues and where there is drug abuse,” Miller said.
This plan is not going to fix what’s wrong with the school system in America, Miller said, but it is a step in the right direction.
According to Miller, charter schools are a “model for schools that are free and open to everyone,” but the Obama era “made that model very difficult to do because of the lack of transparency and accountability.”
In a statement, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos defended the Trump Administration’s charter school expansion plan as “a way to provide more support to schools that provide a quality education and serve all children, including our most vulnerable students.”
“This is a critical, overdue investment in education and will ensure that millions of students are able to learn, thrive and succeed,” DeVos said.
“I am confident that these investments will result in a better education for our students and our children’s futures.” “
The Trump-era expansion of the federal funding of charter school programs was criticized by many. “
