I'll be honest- I didn't like the idea of charter schools because I felt like I shouldn't. Never did any research on it, only "heard" bad things. But there's a few magnet and charter schools popping up in my area that seem freaking amazing! (of course that's what their websites are supposed to do) These schools partner with nearby hospitals or research companies to give kids lots of hands on practice. One of the schools has the students doing rotations in a hospital by their senior year. Another partners with biotech companies and has all sorts of amazing resources for the kids to use. As a science teacher, it seems too good to be true. So is it? Are charter schools really that bad?
