Read all about the debates raging about NYC's charter schools, which are operated independently, but with public money. It seems they'll be around a while longer yet:Question asked via StreetAdvisor The opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of Douglas Elliman.

Whoa...it's crazy that the Republicans were against this bill because it opposes for-profit schools. A for-profit school?!?! The world has gone mad.
@BroadwayBK they are totally loco.. NYC needs new schools not everyone can afford to go to a private for profit school...god knows there are enough of them already,,,
Crickets, I'm really glad they're keeping charter schools! As I've mentioned elsewhere, I've gotten a pretty good education from the one I attended, elsewhere referred to as "magnet" schools.
@Uraniumfish I vote for Charters too.. at least the hedge fund men seem to be doing something right
Did you guys read the latest on Hunter College High School and its various woes in the NY times this week? I went there for a year - it's a great, bizarre, eccentric place. Right now the administration is debating whether to alter its strictly academic test-based admissions policy with a more holistic approach that allows it to admit a greater diversity of students. I see both sides of the argument...
@ajadedidealist I did happen to read an article on the issue and tend to agree with you
@ajadedidealist I could use a link to that, if you've got one lying around.
@BroadwayBK here it is
@Everyone here's a report a new ( actually old school) that has been established on Governor's Island-The New York Harbor School.. sounds like such a fun place to get an education and learn how to swim as well!
Hah, fantastic! Ain't got nothin' on Hunter for charm, but I'd like to learn to swim while doing calculus any day!
