Friends this is a big problem. We can hardly go a few days without a new charter school scandal or a study that says they don’t perform better than public schools and often perform worse. Before we steal scarce resources from our public schools we should slow down and make sure we are getting things right.
Instead of approving any new charter schools we should have a moratorium on them until their accountability and quality catch up with public schools, because if we don’t we are doing our children and community a disservice.
