1. "They are not required to be non-profit." There are a minuscule amount of for-profit charters in Los Angeles so since this website is for Los Angeles schools, that argument is irrelevant. 2. "Their governance is not public." My husband investigated joining a charter school board, and learned that EVERY meeting must be open to the public. 3. Charters have far more MEANINGFUL oversight by LAUSD than regular public schools. When charters do not produce results, they are generally shut down. Sometimes the LAUSD board gets intimidated by protesting parents, but at least the charters have to be officially re-examined every few years, which is more than you can say for regular schools.by Heidi Preston
