FREE SHS

I have taught here in the USA not less than a decade and I am very familiar with student's performance.
Do you know they keep closing some public schools and parents in some states like NY, Illinois, DC(not a state), Florida etc prefer Charter and private Schools? This is because some public schools are not performing well. Just go the Bronx and see for yourself.

Most students in Chater Schools are not from rich homes-they are from both poor and rich. States pay for poor kids through a voucher system to ensure that they kids get better education.

If you are really an educator, I will recommend you do not use google information. Rather look for proper data from highly professional sources and Federal data.

Besides, education is funded by local taxes so it is not actually FREE. Poor zip codes pay less property taxes and therefore are not able to have good schools despite government efforts to subsidize. Nothing is free here in the US.
