Getting the type of school that you thinks is best for your child should not depend
on where you live or how much money you have.
Many parents have chosen to send their children to charter schools. The public
schools often times to not suit the needs of some children. The public schools
struggle to be combination school, reform school, and hospital. The parent of an
average student who wants a traditional education is competing with various lobbying
groups , often times unsuccessfully.
The solution is the charter school. But there are limits on the numbers of charter
schools and how many students they can take.
The argument was that it would take money away from the public schools. Who’s money
is it? A parent should be able to get a school which is good for his child and not
be at the mercy of local school committees representing special interest groups.

I would lift the cap on charter schools. All it does is deprive people of choice.
