2. This would be a good thing, depending upon the type of charter school.

 

In Florida, private for-profit charter schools coming in would be, IMHO, a bad thing.

However, were these competitive schools PUBLIC charter schools, I would welcome the competition in most cases.

Things just aren't the same from one state to another.

Not all charter schools are bad, just as not all traditional public schools are good.

We don't have time for failing schools and districts to reform; it can take a generation or longer to effect meaningful change, and even then it's not guaranteed.
