Everyone chatters about whether charters will lead to vouchers and so forth but I think a much more interesting and complicated issue is the overlooked tension between charter schools and homeschoolers, especially virtual schools. The Homies don’t like ’em. Hard to see charter foes pivoting to take advantage of this – “Parents stay free! Keep away from public regulation!” – but still interesting especially because some Homies would like to organize as charter schools to take advantage of public funding but that raises some very complicated questions about publicness.
