"Are there viable solutions to this discrepancy between charter and traditional public schools"

Sigh, this useless debate about charters vs. traditional masks what's really happening. Aggressive school choice IS markedly revealing the fault lines in DCPS, but it's not charters. My in-bounds DCPS elementary is, shall we say, not good. And yet, the neighborhood is chock full of active, energetic parents who are almost desperate to help. Do they go to charters? A few do. Do they flee to the burbs? Some do. But overwhelmingly we go to OTHER DCPS traditional schools.

The discrepancy isn't between charters and traditional DCPS, it's between good and bad schools. Good schools (traditional and charter) are bursting at the seems, bad schools are shedding students. Funny how that works.
