Maybe they're operating on the ASU model...

My local school district sent out a notification at 10am that all schools would be open tomorrow, followed by a retraction just now that all schools will continue to be closed. Sounds like there is still a lot of confusion at the district level.

Not all private schools are religious schools.

As for your "A-Rated" schools, only 34% of 8th graders in public schools in Arizona are proficient in math, national average is 33% with the best at 50%; only 71% have a basic understanding of math, national average is 69% with the best at 83%. For reading we are at only 30% proficient in reading, national average is 35% and the top is 51%; for basic understanding of reading Arizona is only at 75%, national is 75% and the top is 91%. Large city public schools do even worse. Best you can hope for from your "A-Rated" school is your kinds will have a basic understanding of math and reading.

To compare, national average proficiency in math is 33% for public schools and 47% in private schools; similarly for reading national average is 35%, and private schools are at 57%. If you look at the basic and advanced understanding levels it is also a huge difference between the two across the board. Without a doubt private schools, on average, do it better than public schools.

Teachers will resume work once the budget is passed and that is the only way they should return to work.

A 20% raise will do what?

I wasn't talking about average, I said the "A-Rated" school they already go to. The test scores are much higher than what you quoted, I've looked them up. Most private schools are religious, Phoenix Country Day is an exception.

That's why it's important to not go to one of the garbage public schools such as those in poorer areas that bring the average way down, parents should do their homework before buying a house if they choose to send the kids to a public school, they aren't all the same.

Hmnn. Maybe Tulsa teachers should go on strike too, for more education resources.
