There are plenty of myths and misrepresentations on charter schools and school of choice and plenty of them are coming from our side of the political divide. The first thing that I would like to point out is that yes there is definitely potential for abuse in the existing charter school laws in this country and no there is likely too little oversight. But Charter schools also provide opportunity, opportunity to try new and innovative teaching ideas or to try the hundred year old methods that worked great prior to the post WWII corporatization of US schools. They provide poor children the opportunity to receive the same education that rich kids get. And in a district with an average class size of over 30 it allows at least some students to experience the feeling of really mattering, of not just being another face in the crowd or a number on a budget spreadsheet.
