‘Cherry picking’? Union-run schools dump struggling kids on charters

In its campaign to slow the charter school movement, the California Teachers’ Association claims charters appear to perform better because they “cherry-pick students … weeding out and turning down students with special needs.” That would be amazing if it were true. In fact, a series of reports show the opposite is true. In one case, educators in the San Diego Unified School District have counseled their students with low grade-point averages to transfer into charter schools.
