Charter schools and efficiency

On the topic of school finance, about the “efficiency” lawsuit:

Charter schools also appear to do a better job for less money dealing with at risk students, yet the state limits the number of charter schools. Removing that cap and allowing more charter schools might also be a way to improve efficiency. It is absolutely essential for the taxpayers of Texas and the future work force that this issue be discussed by the court.

From an opinion piece by Bill Hammond, president and CEO of the Texas Association of Business,  “Let’s look at the efficiency of public education spending”, Houston Chronicle, May 15, 2012.
