Are charter schools a good idea?

Poll Results: 3,231 votes
Some of them are really great, but others... not so much.
Yes! We have to keep trying them and improve the education system.
No they're just a way to get money away from general public schools.
A lot of the time they're just a way to get around the unions.

They are not proving to be better historically.

Studies are showing that the education is inferior to public schools. So not a good idea. A bad example of capitalism, just like for profit prisons.

They were a decent idea but in some cases greed got in the way. :(
