  •  And that's the problem (4+ / 0-)

    Charter schools pick the kids they want in their school. They will take as many as they can enroll at first, and then when the Fourth Friday Count is over they weed out the ones they don't want. Those kids go back to the underfunded public school that can barely afford special ed services or at-risk student services because that new charter school academy got the money that would have gone to the public school.

    And then if you're lucky enough to go to one of Dr. Ingersoll's schools, you get a full eye exam and sold "special" glasses that you can only buy from him. The only special ed services he offers is his "Integrated Vision Therapy" because kids with ADHD and other behavior problems are misdiagnosed with vision problems.
