    in governance too, via school boards, perhaps a parent-teacher-association, and in California, School Site Councils.

    I suspect whether and to what extent parents are involved in school governance has more to do with the specific people running a school district and an individual school than it does with neighborhood public vs. charter. (I have certainly heard of instances within franchised charter school organizations where governance was very top-down and not so parent-centric, and there are public schools where parents are very much involved.)

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
