What is your opinion on charter schools in America?

I think that they can be a good concept and a few have certainly done well, but certain people fvck it up entirely - and it is impossible to clean up the fvckery in charter schools and preserve their goals and purposes.

The more choices people have the better. I think one of its best attributes is also considered its worst: the fact that a person can choose the environment his/her child should learn in based on the student boy while also taking in some public funding.

Charter schools tend to be good in theory and bad in practice with rare exceptions, yet the exceptions are the ones that people who support charter schools falsely represent as "the norm."

It's possible big corporations would begin to set up charter schools to brainwash children into good workers, managers and CEO's to run the various businesses that they buy out.

You have it wrong. It's impossible to clean up the fvckery in public schools. Bad Charter schools can easily go bankrupt.

I agree they are marginally better than publics, but they are cheaper, and usually better in the worst neighborhoods.
