    So, they hope the parents are more likely to be involved?

    From you link:

    Public and charter schools are not much different.
    How about we check results:

    Study of Test Scores Finds Charter Schools Lagging

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 — Fourth graders in traditional public schools did significantly better in reading and math than comparable children attending charter schools, according to a report released on Tuesday by the Federal Education Department.

    I assume that parents that take the time to sign their kids up for charter schools would be more engaged then parents that don't. So, using your previous logic (and what I would have thought too), shouldn't charter school kids be doing better? Do they give a reason for the discrepancy?

    You make an assumption not supported. I don't know if they do or don't. Some assume they would, but that isn't actual evidence they do.

    But, let's look at the facts. They don't teach math differently, for example. They may have a little more freedom, which could easily be given to public schools. They have not done better on tests, so exactly what is the rationale for prefering them over public schools?

    Perhaps you should listen more to your liberal friends in Congress.

    I'm sorry but you can't be taken seriously when you go down nutter lane with the Marist / socialist / communist silliness.

    Private schools don't pay better. Their teachers don't have to be certified either.

    Exactly, anyone who thinks our forefathers were Marxist for supporting progressive taxes, SS and Medicare that created the strongest middle class in our history, are pretty much as nutter as they get.

    This is from your link.

    "A study done by Stanford University found that charter schools on average perform about the same or worse compared to public schools."
