A reader comments on the post about the closing of a beloved elementary school in North Carolina, due to competition from a charter school and state budget cuts:



I want to point out a specifically horrible aspect to this. In NC, if a home schooled child decides to attend a charter school, the public schools district in which they live is required to tranfer funds to the charter school, even though they NEVER RECEIVED THE FUNDS FROM THE STATE since the child was never enrolled in the district. This was the case for a number of students in this case making the financial impact worse.
