Re the Fordham book on elite schools: I have tried to open, in Los Angeles, a charter school that could morph through time, through possible student attrition, into a magnet school by replacing departing students with those admitted by examination: good luck opening such a school in Los Angeles! There the emphasis is all on the masses of students, whether here legally or not, newly arrived and now well represented in the leadership of the city and the school district. That the district should take care of the students currently enrolled is understandable and commendable; but it doesn't represent taxpayers residing within district limits who have given up on L.A. Unified because the district does not appear to be interested in the futures of those residents' children.
