Argument: Charter schools spend more on administration
- Debate: Charter schools - con argument.
Deborah Bach. "School Board digs in against charter schools". Seattle PI. December 17, 2003 - "The Seattle School Board intends to make a pre-emptive strike against charter school legislation that came close to passing last session, despite being turned down by voters twice in the past. [...] At its Jan. 7 meeting, the board is expected to adopt a resolution opposing charter schools. [...] The proposed resolution cites a study last year by the American Federation of Teachers that found that charter schools spend a greater percentage of their resources on administration, less on infrastructure and provide fewer services than the districts they reside in."
