Growing Influence Of Public Charter Schools 

Friends of Choice in Urban Schools recently announced that charter schools now education 31% of all public school students in the nation's capital. But if we add the 2,600 kids that are in failing public high schools that are about to be turned over to charter school operators then the percentage swells to 42%.

This means that the number of students educated by DCPS and D.C.'s charter school movement are just about even.

Quite impressive considering that each charter school is in essence its own company.
