    • Hello Mia! It is wonderful to hear that you’ve enjoyed and capitalized on the opportunities that carter school has provided you. While this is an amazing experience for you, there is overwhelming information that points in the opposite direction. An article in the Washington post highlighted a few of these issues (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sheet/wp/2014/05/20/a-dozen-problems-with-charter-schools/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.98ee4f8f5033). While a wide majority of charter schools fair to perform at their intended standard, I am glad you are in attendance of one that does. I would recommend looking for more sources in your argument and trying to get a broader sense of the subject rather than leaning heavily on personal experience and opinion. Best of luck moving forward!

    • I didn’t know that charter schools were public schools. I would love more information on why charter schools do not receive as much funding. I am also curious about why not all schools would be structured like charter schools if the level of education is so much better. Personally, I go to a private school which my parents pay for. My school does not receive public funding, but still performs well. Public funding is not a necessity, but funds must come from somewhere. Is there anywhere else charter schools get money from?

    • Hi Mia! I agree with you wholeheartedly on this. I have never gone to charter school, but been in private school my whole life. It was touching when you said “Because of the benefits charter schools provide, I have been able to succeed and become a better student”. This shows that you are making the most out of you education. Thanks for writing this, and I hope to read more from you!
