Who Owns the Schools?

Ohio continues the debate over authority in education. It is interesting that in the article linked below, it states clearly that Teacher’s Unions are suing Charter schools as being unconstitutional, while working for public educational organizations that could be argued to be unconstitutional. The article hits it squarely that the main issue is that of ownership or control. Charter schools are the rage because parents want control over their child’s education. Novel idea. When we give up an individual right to the government, it is almost impossible to get it back.
