"Karen Wolfe is a parent activist in Los Angeles who fights for public schools against the behemoth that is the California Charter Schools Association.She recently discovered that the school district was considering spending $24 million to install a Unified Enrollment system. Karen did research and wrote three posts. You should read all of them. The third post in the series has links to the other two.  The first thing she learned was that a common enrollment system is being pushed hard by the charter lobby, because it puts public schools and charter schools on an equal footing.

Go, learn the scam."
