Underpaying the people who shape your child's mind for 12+ yrs isn't exactly smart.

But I'm confused why a teacher would be against charter schools if they really care about providing the best possible education to students?

Illegal immigrants add to California school population:

Perhaps 3 percent of students are themselves undocumented, and 12.3 percent have a parent who is undocumented.
