I'm not denying that private support helps the charters survive and thrive - it does and it should. I do deny that this means they have more money than public schools. They still function with less and simply have the right priorities (you know, like not building $30 million stadiums).
I agree with everything you just said except the implication that charters are better or more noble than public. I strongly object to charters that receive public money and are run by religious or for-profit administrations that are not accountable to the elected school boards.
