Since the first charter school opened its doors in Minnesota in 1992, the movement has multiplied at a dizzying pace. Today, half a million students attend more than 2,000 such schools in 35 states. And that number is sure to swell. President George W. Bush is calling for millions in new funding to help start new charter schools. The education bill approved by the House last week gives students in low-performing schools the option to transfer to charters. Low-performing schools that fail to meet national education requirements three years in a row could be shut down and reopened as charters.
