@Ken, it cuts both ways. We've had parents transfer into our school because the school they were in (both charter and traditional) wasn't working out for them. Likewise, I've had friends transfer, either during the year or between years, as slots became open in other schools. We've done it ourself, as the school we were in wasn't working out (DCPS -> DCPS).

Likewise, I consider my kids to be in an excellent school (which happens to be a traditional DCPS). But I've had friends where our school didn't work out for their kid, for reasons I understand. If the school isn't working out for YOUR kid, not matter how wonderful it is for everyone else, you'll try and find a better option.

There isn't A answer to education, and a lot of this churn is parents trying to find a better fit for their kids. Could it be better managed? Quite probably. Is it a sign of educational end times? Not at all.

And I have to reiterate, down here in the trenches, charter vs traditional isn't the line we draw.
