This is an excellent letter to the editor that asks the right questions about charters:
Why do they get public money yet refuse to submit to public audits?
Why do they enroll fewer children in poverty?
Why do their leaders refuse to aid struggling public schools?
Why do they claim that the only way to help poor children is to move them to their privately managed schools?
Why do they refuse to acknowledge that public magnet schools outperform charter schools?
Why are charters the preferred “reform” of some of the state’s wealthiest citizens?
Why do charter advocates slander our public schools?
