Re the Dec. 14 story Florida gave about $70 million to charter schools that later closed; state recouped little: As a retired public-school teacher now teaching at a charter school, I have seen good and bad public schools and good and bad charter schools.
When a charter school is good, the media tend to overlook it, and when it is bad, it is closed down, as it should be.
Bad public schools, however, keep on going with increasingly large injections of public funds. Why not do an expose of how the public schools are failing their students, their teachers and the taxpayers, but continue to take more money? Just a thought.
