  •  Now, what in the world (4+ / 0-)

    would make you say that? Granddaughter who attended the same charter since 2nd grade graduates high school (regular public, that's all there are here) this year. Already accepted to Duke with scholarship, medical research.

    Charters ARE public in my state. Maybe they aren't in yours, but that's no skin off my family's teeth. They serve a necessary purpose and do very well compared to the regular public schools, better in some measures. Six of one, half a dozen of the other. The charter is smaller, can only take so many students per year. Do you also have a problem with smaller public schools as opposed to those with student bodies in the multi-thousands? Would you bus kids 4 hours a day to make sure the small schools are as crowded as the big ones? Would you pay for the bonds to build the bigger schools instead of maintaining the big schools you've already got?

    What would you be prepared to do to make sure every child gets exactly the same level of educational experience?

    Now, more than ever, we need the Jedi.
