Times editorial rips charter school myth

The recent study that showed the performance of charter school students in math and reading lagged behind the performance of public school students is the subject of an editorial in today's New York Times.
Not only does the study indicate charter school students do worse, but students in charter schools that are not affiliated with public schools do far worse than those in charter schools created by public school districts.
If education reform advocates seriously want a better system, the absolutely worst way to do it is by pouring money into social experiments designed to benefit the elitists in our society.
