Letter: Look at the facts in charter school debate

If proponents and opponents looked at the facts in the charter school debate instead of relying on their ideologies, we might make progress at improving public education.

Why did high-performing teachers (based upon their value-added student test scores) who received a $20,000 stipend for teaching at a low-achieving school fail to have a positive effect on middle school student achievement? Is it because the deficit is already too great to fully remediate? Would pre-K help?

Now that Andrew Luck is getting ready to start the third year of his NFL career, did the Colts make the right decision to release Peyton Manning and turn the offense over to Luck?

Yes, the future is bright.
No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
