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.

Your neighborhood underfunded dumping ground public school?
Ding, ding, ding, ding!
And what does our winner get?
