Re: “Two Highly Touted Oakland Charter Schools Quickly Closed, Now Owe the District Money

Oakland schools have been suffering years at the expense of students. So interesting during this boom in housing prices that expectations rise along with home amd rent increases. Some charter schools fail, some are great and are successful, ultimately providing alternative and innovative options to an antiquated, broken and underfunded system. What about public schools who underperformed for whatever justifying reasons, who is angry about the kids that are under served or schools that dont make the district money, is making a profit what this is about? What a coincidence that performing public schools are in affluent areas with privileged PAC'S. The system is now making people ignore the real issues and fight over non relevant issues (like a recent big election), public vs charter. EVERY parent has the right to try and do best by their child without paying over 20k a year for an elementary or middle school education. It is counterintuitive to point fingers at public vs charter and not recognize who suffers, what real issues get ignored. Someone who supports charter schools im sure supports public schools but for one reason or another makes a decision. Having no options is like having one cell phone provider, one grocery store, one banl, one car maker, etc. Stop blaming the wrong people because I guarantee closing charter schools would fix nothing!
