>>Charter schools are not homeschools: <<

Charter schools are privately owned schools that receive tax dollars from the state for each child.
They are virtual elementary schools. If what one is looking for is to keep one's child innocent of the liberal agenda and influence of troubled classmates, this is an option.
If one is looking to keep the government out of one's education, this is not for you.
However, if the homeschooling movement begins to infight, we will lose everything.

Socialism by any other name is socialism.

You're not homeschooling your charter schooling at home. There's a difference.

Charter schools are not privately owned nor are not privately funded. If they were, they would not be considered charter schools, but rather private schools. They are operated in much the same manner as private schools and they have some freedom in how and what curriculum is taught. They do not receive private money, and they do not charge tuition.

Because charter schools receive state funding, they are technically considered public schools. However, they are not affliated with any public school district.
