Another year where charters get a pass ($100 million just in Philly for special ed that they DO NOT spend on special ed).  Meanwhile, public schools are starved.  Criminal.

Charters have been misusing special ed funds for years so it would be unfair to suddenly make them toe the line even though you expect public schools to do it? Or did the charters threaten to withhold their funding to the politician that make these laws. If charters are truly public schools then make them take any and all students and follow funding rules for public schools too.
