This argument is getting old. I am almost positive that everyone who argues against charter schools are in favor of competition. Competition results is a better quality product. We choose where we purchase our milk. We choose where we purchase our gas. Why should we not be able to have a choice in where we educate our children?
Before charter schools, the only option was private schools and home schools. Yes, it is a sacrifice to take your child to school and to pack their lunch. Many families have found a way to do this in exchange for sending their child to a more structured, disciplined and results oriented school.
Charter schools are not for everyone, but it is a very good option for many.
