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 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.
 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.
