There are lots of charter schools in LA, including some great ones and some not-so-great ones, but don’t think that LA has “more” of them than has become common in big cities around the country.
As this new map from a national charter school association shows, lots of other cities have proportionately lots more charters than LA. And, in a few of these places — like New Orleans — the choices are not only abundant but the charter schools also generally out-perform the district.
