Re: “Too Hot for School?

As site administrator, BenChavis influences the lives of many young people. How many people would like their child to grow up to be like Ben Chavis? The parent who credited Chavis and his PHd teacher (probably not the only PHd from Stanford to go into the classroom) with his child's great gains seems to forget that there are others at the charter school who have been abused by the system that Chavis has created. Does this parent only care about his own child? That's fostering a caring, safe community! I would guess all of you who support Ben Chavis would support public school teachers, principals, and staff people behaving the way Chavis does. Maybe if they were allowed to intimidate and physically and emotionally abuse students the students would be forced to score higher on state tests. Imagine the future society we would create! By the way, wasn't there a funeral for the "N" word? I'm certain Chavis didn't attend.
