In our poll, 43% wanted to raise the cap on charters, and 57 % said to put good schools in everywhere, which is my position. Clearly many people reading my blog are likely to inclined to agree with me, but I know many of my friends are for lifting the cap on charters.
In either case, I think that all the attention on raising the cap on charters in the past week really doesn't address the root problem: why don't we have good schools in the inner city, and why aren't our kids prepared and eager to learn?
That is the question that I want to answer and to fix. I am convinced that having good schools in all the neighborhoods is part of having healthy non violent neighborhoods.
