Interesting. The anti-charter school lobby claims that charter schools tend to underperform. A closer look at the data is in order, for me at least. It’s hard to argue with the high demand for charter schools. Are so many customers likely to be wrong? What I know for certain is that teacher unions are not good for students, and if charter schools make the unions uncomfortable they must be doing something right.
