Jonas Bros Helping Privatize US Schools?

Corporate interests represented by private schools, charter schools, and virtual schools are launching a new push to help privatize America’s schools and now Jonas Brothers are joining in, reports Bold Progressives.

Dubbed ‘School Choice Week,’ a coalition of these schools is launching 3,500 events this week to advocate for school vouchers, the expansion of charter schools, and other policies that would help privatize education. The kick-off event for the group featured a concert and rally hosted by the Jonas Brothers in Phoenix, Arizona. Organizers described their push for school vouchers as equivalent to the battle for civil rights and woman’s suffrage:

Just as whistle-stop tours were used to promote civil rights like women’s suffrage to the end of racial segregation, the National School Choice Week ‘Special’ will draw attention to the great civil rights fight of the 21st century: school choice for all Americans regardless of their race, income, zip code or learning ability. A key study released late last year that found that the proliferation of charter schools has actually increased racial segregation, a blow to civil rights.

    I don’t think she meant “the way they act on social media” but the grammar/spelling mistakes they keep on making. (This as far as I know, English not being my first language)

    This sounds like a terrible idea if I’ve ever heard one. My public school system was actually really good. People who lived in my district, despite their income bracket, were able to receive a quality education.

    Privatizing education is not the answer. Raising funding for low-income PUBLIC schools is.

    Look at Joe’s face. He is not working as his brother but his face looks so tired, old, with dark circles. Definitely, Joe’s face is ruined by the excesses (alcohol, parties, drugs, whores) He used have a flawless face

    When Joe reaches age 30, his face will have many wrinkles because of the excesses. He became a hardcore partier. Poor guy, he was so cute

    Totally disagree with this. Things like this just take funds away from public schools. There should be more people trying to make public schools better all over the country. Not taking away funds.

    NEW BLIND GOSSIP ABOUT JOE AND THE SWISS FAMEWHORE

    http://blindgossip.com/?p=50301#more-50301

    This young performer is really depressed right now. He got out from under the control of his family… only to fall under the control of his girlfriend.

    She decides everything: what he is going to wear, where they are going to live, how often he speaks to his family. She tells him that she wants him to stop touring because it is too stressful. She presents all this to him as if it is for his own good… but it is actually all for her own good!

    She is nobody, but she thinks she deserves to be a star… and her relationship with him is just one step up the ladder. She is the one who wants them to move to a place where she can be “seen”. She is the one who is having him publicly shill products with whom she is associated. She is the one who wants him to get tickets so that she can be photographed in the front row at Fashion Week.

    She is the one who wants to live together… and engaged a reality TV show to film them looking for a place to live. When they go out for dinner, she is the one who calls the paparazzi to notify them where they will be. In return for the tip off, she is the one who asks that they always use the word “beautiful” before her name.

    She is totally using him, but he doesn’t really seem to get that. He is terribly unhappy but he doesn’t know why. His friends are worried that he is not strong enough to get out of the relationship. He is not very mature, he drinks a lot, and he is afraid to be alone.

    What would they know about this?

    They were homeschooled.. and if their twitter is any indication they didn’t get much of an education.

    That has nothing to do with homeschooling! More like greedy needy parents who don’t give a Damn and don’t fuel that need!

  • jonatic4eva

    This is so old OU!! That event at Phoenix’s school was on January 25th!!!!! and shu*t up everyone! if The Jonas Brothers don’t do something is bad, if The Jonas Brothers do something is also bad…WHAT DO YOU ALL WANT???. They were educated by their parents and they did such a great Job. Even if you all don’t wanna accept it.

    If supporting your kids to chasing their dreams is being greedy…YES! They parents are greedy.

    If schools were privatized, then they would be getting absolutely no aid from the government, the money coming in would lie soley with donations from parents of the students that attended. If the majority of students that attended the school were from low income, then the school would still have low funding.
