Argument: Public schools can offer everything charter schools claim
- Debate: Charter schools - con argument.
Larry Kuehn. "Ten Problems with Charter Schools". British Columbia Teachers' Federation. 1995 - "The concerns of most parents can be addressed by the current system. Many program options are currently offered in public schools and schools are increasingly open to program options. Particular languages, areas of focus such as the arts, and special needs are already met by programs within the public schools. This approach better serves the public good than setting up what are often essentially private schools with full public funding. Parent advisory committees, mandated in the School Act, provide an opportunity for parents to provide input into the school policies."
