A story every advocate and opponent of charter schools should read. It beautifully makes the point that charters aren't for everybody: there will be students who don't like them, teachers who don't fit, and charters that don't succeed.
But for the students who a charter is right for, the results can be glorious.
I maintain that charters are not solely about test scores or college acceptance. They are about choice. Why shouldn't parents/guardians have the choice to send their children to a charter school?
