Individual Componets AnthonyLet’s talk about the charter school Central Jersey College Prep. This school has been around since 2006-today.

TarikWoke up today,faced to the wall Having to got to school again It's the place where I don’t belong,where nothing interests me I wish I were somewhere else,where I could understand the lessons Even though this might be the best(school),I'm not learning anything I can’t find the opportunities I need,not here I can’t find the joy of school,not here I wish I were away,to a school where I understood the way.

JayEducation is an important thing,


But we need to revise it. Albert Einstein once said that everybody is a genius, but if you make a fish climb a tree, It will never succeed and live its whole life believing it is useless. Although Einstein is no longer alive, this quote has meanings that we can still derive The school system is said to help students accomplish their dreams But why do countless numbers of students go through the institution And cease to find their passion. Math and Science are important But so is Art and Music, 2 subjects that give you the ability to think creatively, innovatively, and collaboratively Which are all skills that we will need now and in the future. And why does the outcome of a single test Determine a student's success. Sure Standardized Test teach us how to think critically But it fails to teach students to think openly and freely Why are we taught how to be accepted into University But not the skills to fight police brutality Although it may seem like the Public School System has no hope, We can still turn it around and push it in the right direction.


Public/Private school Response Anthony- CJCP The opportunity of being in the school I attend is that you are being prepared for college. This school treats you like you’re in college at times and so it might seem bad that they do it will help. So seeing as you already know what’s to come and how it is going to be it’ll help you in the long run. Even with the work load they provide it’ll help you so you’re not overwhelmed. Everything that they do here at this school and these types of schools are somewhat like they do at actual colleges. This school is meant to show the kids how to act, how to do the work, etc. The teachers here are to help the kids learn and learn how college will be. Their overall goal is to get the kids ready for college. The teachers are even harder on the kids and they expect them to act like they’re in college. So by this the work is going to be harder. It’s going to be a lot tougher and it will be a lot more.
