    “Charter Schools: A Myth That Needs Death”

    If you look at the studies on charter schools, you will find (if one really wants to look at evidence, and not politics) that charter schools are not better, in general, than regular public schools. Indeed, somewhat more studies show that the latter are, on average, better. When will the right-wing hoodwinking stop?
