Charter Schools and Districts (Merc News Article)

Since many folks may be away this weekend, I'm providing a link to an article from the Mercury News. It talks about the inherent issue in the State law that created charter schools- that it does, in some ways, pit charter schools against districts. If someone were to want to spend a lot of time on the legislative side, it might be a worthwhile endeavor to try to fix this problem.

As a note: the article is pretty even-handed. It acknowledges the differences between charters and traditional school districts. It's also interesting to see the issues that some other districts have with their charter schools. Some of the issues are similar, and some are directly tied to the fact that some charter schools are chartered by the county instead of the local districts. All very interesting...
