Scoppe: What’s the difference between building charter schools, growing government?

I’M NOT ONE of those people who lump charter schools in with tax-credit and voucher schemes designed to funnel tax dollars into private schools. To the contrary, I’m a fan of the idea behind charter schools: that by allowing parents to create public schools and operate them free of some of the normal red tape, we can encourage greater parental involvement and encourage innovation that too often is stifled in the regular public schools.
