Sue M. Legg: Charters Bomb in Florida

The Florida Department of Education, firmly in the hands of the Jeb Bush team, tried to spin the “success” of the charter industry, but Sue M. Legg of the League of Women Voters in Florida says, “Not so fast.”

In this post, she explains that charter schools enroll a lower percentage of students who qualify for free and reduced lunch, of English language learners, and of students with disabilities.

She asks:

Is the formula for successful charters to weed out students whom they cannot help? Should traditional public schools do the same? Where does this road lead?
