Geekouts Links Late May 2014

by geekout Friday, May. 23, 2014 at 5:30 AM

Latest few months worth of links.

It's been a few months, but it's time to make massive blogs about stuff worth reading.

Using Charter Schools to Destroy Traditional Public Schools in Chicago

A mayor who wanted to privatize his school system would realize it couldn't be done in one swoop. There'd be too much opposition from parents and union teachers. A better plan would be to add charters slowly, and let them nibble off students from the traditional schools. Many of the regular schools would wither away, until closing them seemed only prudent.

The creeping transition to a charter school system has been going on for more than a decade now in Chicago. It's happening despite a lack of evidence that charters generally improve education.

The Economic Truth About the ‘Model Minority’

As a recent report by the Center for American Progress lays out, the “model minority” view masks real economic pain and hardship for large parts of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander community.

Of more than 14 different AAPI ethnic groups included in the study, all but three had poverty rates nearly equal to or higher than whites. Only three of the ethnic groups had per capita incomes higher than whites, underscoring that while AAPI individuals on average may earn more, these earnings have to spread over larger families who are in need.
