Thank you for printing Sara Hetland’s article on charter schools [“Appleton charter schools offer valuable options to many students,” Sept. 6]. In most aspects of American life, we consider diversity an asset. But when it comes to public education, too many still think there is only one way to do things. Charter schools do a great job of adding diversity to the system. Too bad we don’t have more of them.
