My name is Mauro Delpino and I am working on my senior project Did you know that 56.6% of Charter Schools are located in cities? This identifies that half of schools are charter schools. Assuming that the other half is public schools, more money goes to charter schools and not public schools. Charter schools only take in certain students but not all. However, public schools take everyone despite their social status so public schools should have more funds. My topic for senior my senior project is: To what extent do charter schools affect urban students in Oakland, California?
I chose this topic because I currently attend a urban public school. I do not appreciate the lack of resources and support my school has. The school has the potential to have a great program but we do not have enough funds. I chose this because it is very personal to me because it affects me and my peers.
I had to research my topic and find 4 important sources to back up my issue:
The first one I found was a website, I found a map of the public charter schools found in Oakland, CA. I found 48 Oakland Public Charter Schools and it identifies the amount of schools that I am referring to.
The second one is a youtube video titled “Charter Schools: Last Week Tonight WIth John Oliver .” This video explains the pros but mostly cons of Charter Schools in general. I used this because it comes from a different perspective other than Oakland natives.
The third one is an academic source titled “Let The Numbers Have Their Say .” it was posted by Center for Education Policy Research At Harvard University. It provides the reader with info on school funding and how a charter school functions.
I found a news article titled, “A Dozen Problems with Charter Schools.” and it identifies that there are many problems with Charter Schools. It gives the readers an insight with the problems with the leadership, school system and funding.
Thank you for reading my blog
I need the help of audience to further my research
