In an ideal world no kids would be left in a safety-net school system as you say. I'm still not sure not having one wouldn't make sense in a place like DC. Some kids are just not going to do well in a traditional or charter environment and it seems like we should accept that an alternative system is most equitable for everyone. Whether or not you have charters, there is going to always be school choice -- it's called moving to another town. Allowing kids a way to opt out of the traditional school model without having to label them as a failure seems like the gentlest way to do it and preserve a healthy environment for all the other students.
