Charter schools outperform other public schools

When nearly half of New York City public school graduates who go to community college there have to take remedial classes in English and math, something is terribly wrong (“Nearly half of NYC DOE grads at CUNY need remedial classes,” New York Post, Feb. 25).  For these appalling results, it costs the city $35,941 per student.

In contrast, charter schools that don’t produce results are shut down. Meanwhile, traditional public schools continue to shortchange students. It’s a scandal that should outrage taxpayers. It’s why so many parents pull their children out and send them to religious and private schools if they can’t get them in charter schools.
