Well, it turns out she wants you, the tax payer, to place your money into these same faux-schools and for-profit schools under her cause of “school choice” at the expense of slashing public school programs.

Of course, some of the best schools in the country are some of these charter and for-profit schools. Hardly “faux”.


Six of the top 10 high schools in the country are charters. On top of that all, some of the the BASIS schools are about 75% minority.

The angst against the school choice movement is…….unhinged. In states where the charters are well supervised by the public school district, they’ve been fabulously successful. In states where the supervision has been crappy…..well, the charter results have been crappy as well, unsurprisingly.

The best high schools in at least three states (California, Arizona, and Texas) are charters.
