Let's keep it going and abolish the public school system and replace it with charter schools that compete for students by their performance. What a concept that schools receiving government funds should be accountable.

septic1, you should have flushed that thought the moment you had it, so that your ignorance would not have been on display once again.

This was a joke and still is...!!!!! My Taxpayer Dollars that paid for School Buildings should not be used by Charter Schools that take only certain students.....

Timbetopper...you are a poster child for what is wrong with the public school system. You cannot comment without name calling and insults and your discourse is completely skewed with bias with not even a hint of critical thinking.

KnuckleBall, I don't know if you're lying or just stupid, but in Arkansas, students go through a blind lottery to be admitted. When my grand-daughter got into her charter, there were 134 applications for 10 seats.
It sounds to me like there are nowhere near enough of these charters.
BTW, I thought you "progs" were all about choice...guess not!

TT, we're trying to eliminate the type of ignorance you display by creating alternates to the horrors of public schools.
There's nothing you can do about it. GTF out of the way.
