The door to the future
Seems the Arkansas DemocratGazette editorial writers can’t do what is good and decent when it comes to educating our children. They continue making their smarmy pronouncements while pouring their “we’re oh so much better than they are” attitude into the debate. Can’t stop griping about the sins of public schools and shouting hallelujahs about the glorious wonders of charter schools.
Give us a break. I think your year-in, year-out diatribes have been the toxic, high-octane fuel that has been feeding this controversy and problem for years. You’ve become like Joe McCarthy — finding evil and spouting your oversold brand of propaganda — and finally the public is waking up to the fact that you “have no decency.”
So, why don’t you shut down your hate-mill and give schools a fighting chance to work together for the benefit of all children and all schools? It’s the right thing to do, and it’s time you got on the right side and off your broken-down parade wagon.
Finally, you tell us that failure can be closed down. I believe the continual renewal of the failing charter Covenant Keepers proves you wrong. And your continual drumbeat of animosity toward public education also proves you wrong. Your failure to close down the hatred is the worst sin of all.
The door to the future is open. Please stop spitting through it. JAKE TIDMORE
