24. Charter schools do receive public money

but aren't subject to the same rules as public schools (i.e. they don't have to provide special ed classes). Charter schools can also decide what students attend the school (which makes sense if it's somethink likes a math/science or performing arts magnet school - not so much when they're just trying to keep difficult students out).

In some areas private companies are permitted to run charter schools. Technically the schools are non-profit but someone's making money off them & we're all paying for it.
