POP CULTURE: Charter Student Sings 'American Idol'

Large_American-Idol-Allison-Iraheta First, those homeschooled kids started winning spelling bees.  Now, charter school kids are competing in reality TV contests.  She's Allison Iraheta.  She's in the top ten finalists on this season's American Idol.  She was in the bottom three last week. She goes to Animo Ralph Bunche -- a Green Dot school in LA (sorry!).  Her older sister is a teacher at the same school. 

What next? Voucher kids winning the Rhodes.  Mormon compound kids winning the Seimens science contest.
