What Kind of Education Do Mothers Want for Their Children?

What kind of education do mothers want for their children?

A) A well rounded education that meets the needs of all of their children – including reading, science, math, nutrition/health, music and all of the arts.

“The arts challenge and console us, lift our standards and deepen our thinking, enliven our days and inspire our lives.”
Kate Farrell in Art & Love published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art

-OR-

B) Charter Schools dedicated to preparing today’s children for today’s job market. High stakes testing determines the proof of success for deserving children.

The Walton Foundation is a tax-free institution which invests, for its own profit, large sums of money for the billionaire heirs of the WalMart retail/wholesale multinational corporation.

The Walton Family alone has more wealth than the combined wealth of 42% of American families. (This one family pays much, much less in taxes than the 42% of all American families – combined. The Waltons make their profits from the education taxes paid by those other families. Private profit from public taxes.)

WalMart pays most of its full-time employees minimum wage, thus requiring that they require government supplied food stamps to feed themselves and their families. Their workers in today’s jobs are the working poor. Walton investments fund “Charter Schools dedicated to preparing today’s children for today’s job market.” Read The New York Times article HERE and Diane Ravitch’s commentary HERE.
