Schools should be funded, teachers shouldn't teach students to fill in bubbles and schools should be accountable. Barack Obama gets it and has a plan to make it happen.

31 days, 31 reasons - Reason #11 - Charter School policy that makes sense
Charter schools can make sense if implemented correctly, and I think the Obama/Biden plan makes sense. Provide funding to states for charter schools that outline clear accountability for how those schools perform. The plan also calls for clear guidelines to close under performing schools like was done in Thornton where several smaller schools opened to provide parents and students choices of where to go depending on their desired area of study.
