"What has happened . . . is that [charter schools have] become an enormous entrepreneurial activity, and the private sector has moved in. So there are now charter chains where the heads are paying themselves $300,000, $400,000, $500,000 a year. They compete with regular public schools. They do not see themselves as collaborators with public schools but business competitors and, in some cases, they actually want to take away the public school space and take away the public school business."
