Ms. Ravitch,

I am a new teacher at a Charter school, and have read your article entitled “The Myth of Charter Schools.” I was so overwhelmed about your position that I had to find your email and thank you very much for your hard work and truth.

America has the answers on how to improve our educational system, but we have to look at improving our society and communities. The model for the U.S. comes from the top-ranked nations in the world. In all of those nations, teachers get paid much more than we do in this country. Further, there are society and cultural differences, as well, that we need to look at.

Anyways, thank you for your hard work and the truth in your reporting. If only our Congress and current President would hear you out…what advances would we make.
