CHARTER Schools --the school CHOICE fraud and chaos

"The implication of 'school choice' programs is that good choices by 'consumers' lead to good results, and poor choices lead to poor results. But recasting poverty as a choice is not only misguided but damaging to the fabric of democracy. High-stakes standardized testing also creates a marketplace of shoddy comparisons--a marketplace that fails to see the strength in certain types of variation because it erroneously regards all variation as weakness.

Charter schools do no better than public schools, and in most cases do  worse, despite the fact that they get to choose students, and eliminate the most needy children.

Moreover, many are riddled with fraud,  because  they are not accountable to the people or the government.
