I'm going into a charter school next semester because our highschool is out of control.. the kids are idiots, the teachers are idiots.. I was sick one day and I missed the date to turn in the science project I did for science and my teacher was like it was due yesterday and she told me to throw it away because I didnt turn it in yesterday. Also my principal grabbed my arm and bruised it because it was windy and my shirt blew up and he said I was in serious violation of the dress code.. I hate public school everyone is so stupid. i'm sick of cheerleaders and jocks and underage drinkers and drugs and I just want to leave this sorry excuse for a school.. it's PRISON... but my question is does anyone know anything about Charter Schools?

I am a public school teacher and I know how you must be feeling. I see horrible things day in and day out. I am sorry that your experience hasn't been all that you'd hoped for. However, I can also tell you that the same problems will exisit at every single school, public or charter. The students who are sent to charter schools are the same students who used to go to public schools. You will find that there are still groups and drugs. I also taught at a private Catholic school where I thought drug were more prevelant than what I see in the public school I now teach in. Drugs, violence, and groups are everywhere. I suggest you try other public schools as well, maybe your current one just wasn't a good fit for you. I wish you luck!

I love my charter school! way better than any public school, everyone is so nice!! a Charter school is a homeschool basically they give work to do over a certain amount of time and they offer classes, I go to the classes all the time and everyone is so nice and they act like they actually care because a lot of kids who left the highschool is because of the same reasons you did!

Charter school are better. teachers are held responsible for their actions or lack there of and can not cover their asses with the "I am union and you can not fire me" excuse.
I went to Caholic school on scholarship, and never once was around drugs as Michele mentioned, nor were any of my friends. My cousin who on the other hand attended public school, tried pot and cocaine. All made readily availabe at her school by freinds. Charter schools have more control in holding teachers and students accountable that makes a big difference. Good luck to you Lisa.
