The issue isn't the children attending other schools then the public school they should attend. Believe me I'm all about making the choices that best benefit your situation. My issue is the charters getting money from the public school budget. Offer another option but do it on your own dime. You are wrong about the children being held back to the lowest level of the class. I worried about this because of my son being a fairly fantastic student but they do offer programs for children who excel just like they have them for those who struggle. Its not about the amount of money the charters get its the fact they get any at all from the public system! As always there will be pros and cons to everything, I'm very pleased with the schools my children attend as you seem to be with yours.
