At first glance, I was mistakenly opposed to charter schools because whenever I hear the word "privatization," I cringe. But recently, NYC has been introducing more of these schools with strong results. Basically, these schools are perfect: tax-funded (which means no tuition like a public school), but outside the reach of the Teacher's Union. This means no tenure, along with the other absurdities that unions negotiate. Will there be a push for more of these all around the country? And if so, can we somehow get rid of or weaken the power of the Union if we no longer depend on public schools?
