The only problem with this is that charter schools do not have to accept any student that applies and they kick them out if students are not able to perform or meet the expectations of the school. They do not take in the kids with severe mental or physical handicaps. They are not held to the same standards as public schools.

Lotteries will ensure that charter schools cannot be selective in who they admit. And charters must abide by the exact same accountability framework as traditional public schools.
