Re: “Oakland Needs a Moratorium on Charter Schools

Why can't we use the state/fed money that is building/funding Charter schools into building better traditional public schools and rejuvenating communities. This way ALL students would get a better education, not just the ones lucky enough to get into a Charter school. Children that are left in failing traditional public schools are not getting an equal and fair chance to succeed academically. I understand that choice is relevant, but the students left at the failing schools do not have a choice. Charter schools are a band-aid for the larger issue- socioeconomic disparities in urban areas like Oakland. The school reflects the neighborhood, the neighborhood does not reflect the school.
