45. Yes I know.
But for you there's always that "safety net" - the default school. Where would the kid go if not for your charter? Almost certainly it's a regular district school. And so, when the "problem kid" leaves you, he almost certainly shows up back on the roll of the district school. You, as the charter, get to mark on the state report, "Moved to another school". Thus he's not a dropout for you.

When a problem kid disappears from the district roll, there is no safety net. He's never going to show up back on a charter's roll, because charters are never "default" schools. When he stops attending the district school, they have no alternative but to count the kid as a dropout. Hence, the inequity.
