I really don't understand why you object to an alternative school for children who are not thriving in a standard environment. It seems like such a no brainer to me to give these children a better opportunity and to allow the schools to teach the children who can be tight in a good environment.

Also, how many of these mid-year transfers are actually the result of expulsions and how many are parents deciding that they don't like the charter school that they have selected? Moreover, when it is the result of expulsion, how is that different than if a child is expelled from a private school mid-year? (I do agree that there should be an end of the year count day to account for funding discrepancies, but otherwise, I see no difference.)
