I heard nothing but good things from parents of charter schools in Brooklyn, NYC. I am sure it's similar to Harlem, Bronx, etc... Too bad that's *probably* going to go bye bye as, the teachers union and New York's take-no-prisoners Democratic left want the charters' independence from union control ended. Unions, the gift that keeps on giving. From the video: DeBlasio attacks Moskowitz, who has been championing charter schools, _It's time for Eva Moskowitz to stop having the run of the place, she has to stop being tolerated, enabled, supported. That's going to end when I'm mayor_ YAY!
