I don't trust the charter schools. They only require 50% or less of their teachers to actually be certified. While there are some good ones around they also have a history of not doing well. I don't know why they're such a big deal around the Charlotte area.

They're a big deal in lots of places. 5,600 charter schools with over 2 million students in this country. Plus many other countries.

I am a licensed teacher and that doesn't necessarily mean I'm more qualified to to each english than, let's say, someone who's worked in the private sector as an editor for a publisher. I think the misconception is that they are hiring unqualified comes from your statement and it's not really objective.

With reference to Charters not doing well: Charters are public schools. Local schools are not entiteld to tax dollars that follow the student, but the primary difference is that Charters are a contract with the state: if they fail, the state shuts them down. I don't want to debate what you'd prefer for your own children, but rather, encourage freedom of choice and let the taxpayer vote with their dollars, as those who can afford to, do so with private education.
