‘Our charter school stands for a quality education for all - except…!’ This problem is conveniently ignored by education “reformers” advocating turning low-performing public schools into charter schools. Refusing to accept these students, or taking them and, a few weeks later, telling them they just aren’t fitting in and should go back to public school, is the only way most charter schools can make a profit. Make no mistake, most corporations that get into the charter school business will do whatever it takes to make a profit - including limiting the enrollment of certain students and turning teachers into part-time workers!
School choice makes perfect sense in the twenty-first century. But using taxes, or any other public money or facilities, to finance corporate profits is not in the best interest of society as a whole. Public schools are far from perfect. However, they remain the only institutions that pledge to educate ALL students!
