Urban devastation fertile soil for charter growth

Charter schools are mainly concentrated in the most devastated urban school districts, those with the highest percentages of African-American children. A "market share" report from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools tells the story. New Orleans, D.C., and Detroit lead the way.

Where's Beverly Hills? Winnetka? Scardsdale? Greenwich? Rich people probably just don't understand what's best for their kids, I guess.
