THE AUDITOR general's recent report about Philadelphia's charter schools fails to include any empirical data, and is nothing more than political grandstanding based on opinion rather than facts. The Keystone Alliance believes that Pennsylvania's nearly 20-year-old charter-school law is in need of revisions; however, the auditor general's claim that it is "simply the worst charter-school law in the United States" is ridiculous. A majority of Pennsylvania's public, brick-and-mortar charter schools serve their intended purpose by providing a safe, high-quality education to students at a cost that's lower than traditional public schools. Unfortunately, charter-school opponents are either misinformed or intentionally misrepresenting the facts.
