    are bringing back the public commons. That was our experience in N. CA. The community where we lived supported a wide variety of schools, both traditional public and public charter, and thrived for it. Schools were very engaged with the community and the community with the schools.

    I think this debate should be less about charters schools and more about successful schools. I do know that charter schools wouldn't exist in CA if the state regulations hadn't become next to impossible for progressive education models.
