Dear Editor:

Profit-making groups have always paid the city for use of public school space. Most charter schools are extremely, and in some cases obscenely, lucrative investments. They are only “public” schools in the sense that the public is forced to fund them through involuntary donations known as taxes. New Yorkers should get to pick their own charities. For my money and yours, there are far worthier causes than charter schools.
