Editorial: Cherry-picking

Those who oppose charter schools as a matter of principle usually rely on the argument that charter schools “cherry-pick” students from the public schools. Those of us who know better would make the counter-argument that charter schools are public schools, thank you, and that most use a lottery system to pick students if there is a waiting list. And point to the number of charter schools operating in the most challenging ZIP codes. Fact is, the cherry-picking argument is weak.
