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

Nice to learn about the charter school hedge fund-like operation. I think charter or public, schools cannot be expected to fix all of societies ills. Want to improve educational outcomes? Give families free preschool, decent housing, jobs, healthcare, etc. After all, socioeconomic status is the best predictor of educational outcomes. Not that poor students can't learn - they just need the same basics as anyone else to allow learning to happen. So, with our limited resources as a community, what is the best, most effective use of our resources to equitably educate all our precious children? Public education is not perfect, but it gets my vote for the choice that at least has democratically elected leadership that the public can hold accountable.
