I teach at a high-performing magnet school now, after 15 years in a neighborhood school, and the difference is remarkable for many reasons: 1) kids know they can be sent back to the "home" school; 2) parents put them there and expect success; 3) many are reading and doing math close to or above grade level; 4) parents overall have more education; 5) fewer English learners; 6) fewer special needs students. Just like a charter school, only public. There is enough variety and choice within LAUSD without adding charters to the mix.
