Reihan Salam writes on NRO: The Washington Post's Emma Brown describes how the expansion of public charter school enrollment in the District of Columbia is shaping the politics of public education:

The city's traditional public schools hemorrhaged enrollment for four decades before their student rolls flattened out at about 45,000 in 2009.  Charter enrollment, meanwhile, has steadily climbed for the past decade. It jumped 10 percent this year, to more than 34,000, or 43 percent of all students.
