Parents are fleeing public schools

For the past two years, enrollment in traditional public schools has dropped, while enrollment in charter schools has grown (“We cannot let shameful failures of the public-school system continue,” New York Post, Jun. 6).  The question is why.

The likely explanation is that parents believe that the quality of education their children receive in charters is superior. I don’t disagree with that assessment, but I hasten to add that charters play by entirely different rules.  As a result, comparing schools is unfair.
