While the majority of charters did not expel any students, others kicked out dozens. And while some schools suspended only a handful of kids, others suspended more than 100 — more than half the student body, in a couple cases.

Here's my favorite quote.
Maya Angelou’s executive director, Lucretia Murphy, said suspension rates are higher there because of the population the school attracts — kids who have struggled with incarceration, chronic truancy or other problems.

Now where does Murphy think these suspended students will end up?

Another charter school?
Not likely.
