It seems to me that people are pulling their children out of Private schools where tuition is mandatory, and putting their children into charter schools. The problem here is that it is hard to get your child into a charter school, there is lotterys and sometimes tests. why? The charter schools are aware of this, why is it so hard to get your children into a charter school in their county? For example, if you live in Newark you can only send your children to the Newark charter schools, why? The point of the parent taking their child out of a private school to enter a charter schools means that the charter schools are doing something right. Why make it difficult?
