190. All that depends on the terms of the contract
Edited on Mon May-17-10 03:06 PM by LuckyTheDog
But yes, of course it is true that in most cases contracts cover a specific time period. So?

Public schools also enter into contracts with private companies. And in those cases, they also are bound by the terms of the contract.

Like I said, I never asserted that charter schools are a panacea. But you are mixing and matching data to serve your interests. I am trying to limit my comments to Detroit. You are throwing in state-wide data and national statistics. It could be true that only 17% of charter schools nationwide had better results than public schools. But in the case of Detroit schools, the results of the public schools were AMAZINGLY BAD --way below national averages and even worse than in other big-city school systems.

Also, it's not true that the charters in Detroit actually "replaced" any public schools. They were set up as a parallel to the public schools.
