Sorry for the confusion. You are absolutely correct in your statement. My
comment about blanket statements was intended to point out to folks who might
not be knowledgeable about the charter school movement that states vary all
over the lot from California with a very open law to Pennsylvania with a
restrictive one. Most do tend towards the restrictive end - if they are able
to get a law through at all.
