Pacific Technology School (PTS) in Santa Ana is one of the greatest schools my son has attended so far, and I won’t let these biased Gulen charter schools arguments shade its reputation. According to what we have experienced to this day, our charter school promotes discipline and encourages team work effectively. My son and I do like the diversity the school offers, as he has the chance to interact with students from various backgrounds without prejudging and learning about other their cultures at the same time.
To better understand what teachers at PTS achieve, it is important to note that charter schools generally deal with students that are habitually falling behind in public schools for a variety of reasons. So, I think, it would still be an achievement even if they displayed an equivalent performance. Despite this fact however, there are many charter schools –including ours– around the nation that outperform their neighborhood public schools which serve similar demographics.
I appreciate and welcome the efforts of all charter schools for helping and supporting our kids that grow in underprivileged conditions, an issue not everyone cares about. I have witnessed lots of success stories in which problematic kids ended up flourishing in their hands. I am very happy that we have these schools, and think that, as a society, we need to encourage these institutions that are working for common good.
