So, if Exxon got part of your tax money, that would make it a publically
run corporation?  Being owned and operated by private interests _isn't_
the part that matters?  ;->

As are Exxon stations.  ;->

By the way, in addition to being owned and operated by private
corporations, charter schools have no legal obligation[1] to accept all
students -- unlike private schools.  Many are, in fact, infamous for 
cherry-picking which students they're willing to accept.  Actual public
schools lack that option for making themselves artificially look good.

[1] The more likeable charter schools nonetheless do agree to accept 
students on a first-come, first-served basis -- though I recall that your 
claim of this being 'usually' true is incorrect.
