21. The term charter confuses me. Charter schools are not privately funded, are they?

They are public schools, put in certain places according to need, but allowed to operate outside of the local school district? Or something like that?

I'm not clear on who sets those up, since education is up to the states?

Like I say, the term "charter schools" confuses me. But I must say the results as stated in your post seem impressive. Unless, of course, the money is taken from surrounding schools, and thus leaves those other students behind, without the advantages of the charter schools?
