Rod Jurado of CSUSA did not like my article in the Gainesville Sun: Consequences of School Choice. I described what is happening to local schools and neighborhoods as choices proliferate and funding decreases. I also mentioned that CSUSA, a for-profit charter management company has submitted a proposal to Alachua County Schools.
Mr. Jurado argued, ineffectively, that charters out perform public schools. I disagreed. Here’s the response I submitted as a Letter to the Editor.
