Coming Soon: Charters... Or Vouchers

Jim Broadway notes that charters may seem like a reasonable option (PDF) compared to alternatives "In fact, that is one of the motivations of Rep. Roger
Eddy (R-Hutsonville), whose HB 190 proposes to
add five charter schools to the city of Chicago... Eddy's proposed charter schools would be "devoted
exclusively to students from low-performing or
overcrowded" Chicago schools, as measured by test
scores and concentrations of low-income students."  Which would you prefer, and why?
