And at least some of these with waiting lists perform quite poorly. But, because some continue to argue that all charter schools are better, simply because they are charters, parents continue to line up. Pundits have created a market for lemons when it comes to NJ charters. An no-one is stepping in to publicly disclose - with reasonable comparisons- the actual performance.
