On the Times Union’s web-site, Olgator had the perfect summary of the JPEF study on school choice.
1. School choice doesn’t produce better results.
2. We need more school choice.
3. Parents really like magnets.
4. There’s not enough money to expand magnets.
5. There’s so much money available for charters we can’t build them fast enough.
6. Charters somehow get rid of low performing students and kick them back to public schools.
