One idea that I really like is the idea of Charter Schools. Charter schools are schools that have been granted a charter exempting it from selected state and local rules.
At first glance this may sound bad but in actuallity most charter schools have higher test averages than public schools. What I really like is that I have seen some charter schools that teach "other" topics.
By "other" I mean ethics, morals, finances, philosophy, business and a variety of other skills that are essential for living and working in the world.
What I would love to see is a hybrid Christian-Charter school. A school that is based on biblical Christian teachings as well as incorporating teachings in morals, ethics, finances and social skills.
Hmm. Maybe a Legacy Christian School?
