"Public" charter school fines (unemployed) mom $3000 for her son's misbehavior [View all]

No excuses! The Noble Network of charter schools in Chicago is proud of its high test scores. Mayor Rahm Emanuel says Noble has some “secret sauce” that produces great success.

Could this be it? A Noble charter has fined the mother of a student $3,000 for his rule-breaking.

The mother is unemployed. She can’t pay.

She says she thought that public education was free.

Noble has its high standards. It collected $190,000 (in penalties from misbehaving students) in 2011. Pay or get out.

The mom can't get the kid's report card unless she pays up. Nor can she get any of the records which she needs to transfer the child to another school.

He can't go to school & he can't transfer until she pays up.

If kids get too many fines they have to take a special disciplinary class that COSTS $280.

The Noble schools are targeted toward low-income, high-needs students of color.

ANOTHER WAY THE POOR PAY MORE.
