I'd really like to see a GOOD study on the performance of public vs. charter schools.
This isn't it.
I would like to see how many marginal pupils the "open enrollment" charter schools reject or eject which then end up in public schools, dragging them down.
I'm not averse to charter schools per se, but I'd like to see some real data and some proper studies on the matter.
-----------------------------------------
I saw a Stossel special on Charter Schools and i'm not surprised they score better.

Think about it, what school would be better, one where you can easily fire a bad teacher or one where bad teachers are protected?

Even if they were exactly the same score wise, Charter Schools are actually cheaper. I say it's worth a shot and should be expanded to increase competition.

Cheaper and better, no wonder liberals hate it.

Hey! I found another thing that annoys liberals!
