The answer is simple, but the meaning of the answer is complicated.

Yes, of course they are.

But how much cannot be determined from that article! Charters pull such a small percentage of the total students that it is hard to believe their impact on the regular school's degree of segregation is substantial. This is illustrated by the segment which discusses how large the population of white children is (~32%) vs. the percentage of them in the public schools (tiny) or the charter (~42%).

Are the charters pulling white kids from the public schools or do the majority of them come out of the private school population?! Might the charters be improving the chance of a mixed education, albeit not in the public schools?

I don't know - I don't have the data and I am not sure whether it is readily available or not.

Thanks for the article!

A Toronto man is angry that the degree that he bought for $8,100, without exams or academic work, turns out to be fake.
