180. Well... except the charter schools I know about don't work that way
The charter schools I have actually visited in Detroit (several of them) are all nonprofits that own their own buildings.

I think what you are referring to does exist. But it would be wrong to suggest that all -- or even most -- charter schools are set up that way. I am familiar with the charter schools in Detroit and have limited my comments to those.

The charter school my child attends, for example, would in no way be considered a "for profit" school -- even under the stretched definition of "for profit" that you provide.

Please let me know which Detroit charter schools you think are being run for a profit.
