I like the idea behind "charter" schools, but when schools accepted the label of "charter" school rather than "public" school they are essentially opting out of some of the responsibilities AND advantages that "public" schools get.
I realize that charter schools get public funding, but they are a different branch from regular public schools, so it just works differently.. I actually think that charter schools should be under the umbrella of a direct public school (sort of school within a school) type thing, so they can get the advantages (like paid playgrounds) without all that other stuff..
But the change in rules should force school planners of charter schools to budget playgrounds into their start up plans.. so I don't know maybe it will force more start up money to be put on the table in the first place?
