Now this is important because NOT all charters are good schools, so there should be accountability metrics in place — as there should be with traditional public schools — to hold charters to high standards. And I won’t pretend like we’re all perfect — educationally or morally — b/c we aren’t. But this is still distinct from an attack on all charters as an attempt by Wall Street to leech resources from the system. Hold us accountable when we don’t do a great job educating students or commit fraud — just don’t hold us exclusively accountable when the status quo is rife with the same problems and you want to ignore those.
