Dividir el CCSD no resolverá los problemas del distrito

Frances Floresca

No hay duda de que la falta de responsabilidad afecta a los grandes distritos escolares. Eso incluye el Distrito Escolar del Condado de Clark, que tiene alrededor de 300.000 estudiantes. Pero si los votantes aprueban la “Iniciativa de Escuelas Comunitarias” para dividir el distrito en distritos pequeños en 2024, todavía no proporcionará la responsabilidad necesaria para fomentar la excelencia académica que nuestros estudiantes merecen.

La creación de distritos escolares más pequeños produciría ganadores y perdedores, permitiendo a las familias más ricas trasladarse a los mejores distritos escolares y dejando a las familias más pobres atrapadas en distritos de baja expectativa y bajo rendimiento.

Los padres necesitan el derecho a controlar la educación de sus hijos a través de cuentas de financiación que les permitan elegir entre escuelas chárter, escuelas privadas, escuelas de vaina, microescuelas, educación en casa e incluso las mejores escuelas públicas.
