Myth #6 : Charter Schools Promote Equity operation were meeting the needs of disabled children that the public schools providethe special education the States and the University of minnesotas Center http://www.ctf-fce.ca/E/WHAT/NI/CHARTER/Myth6.htm
Extractions: Reality: There is growing evidence that charter schools promote inequity everywhere they have appeared. Despite their genesis in the political Right, charter school advocates have appropriated the language of the Left: "[The affluent] do not need charter schools. The poor and the disadvantaged, however, have never had such choices. It is they and their children in poor schools and programs who need charter schools." (Freedman, 1996, p. 34) Yet scratch the surface, and it becomes clear that for some proponents of charter schools and other schools of choice, equity is the problem, not the goal. According to John Chubb, the problem with public schools is that they " must take whoever walks in the door. " (Kozol, 1993, p. 18) Who Chooses? Who Loses? Culture, Institutions, and the Unequal Effects of School Choice , the available empirical research concludes that "increasing educational choice is likely to increase separation of students by race, social class, and cultural background." (p. 189) The authors found this to be true even when choice programs are designed specifically to reduce inequities (Henig, 1996; Lee, Croninger & Smith, 1996; Martinez, Godwin & Kemerer, 1996; Waterman & Murnane, 1992; Wells, 1996; Witte, 1996) suggesting that good intentions cannot overcome the gravitational forces of competition applied to schools.

Minnesota Children With Special Health Needs (MCSHN), minnesota Children with special Health needs 259 000 children with special health needs in minnesota. These are Meeting the needs of chronically ill or disabled children through http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/fh/mcshn/issue1.htm
Extractions: Children with Special Health Needs Background There are 259,000 children with special health needs in Minnesota. These are children who have a chronic condition expected to last more than a year causing either a limitation in function, activity or social role; dependency on medication, special diet, medical technology, assistive device or personal assistance to compensate for or minimize limitation of function; or who need medical care or related services over and above the usual for their age. Some of the children have invisible conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy, mental retardation, serious emotional disorder, or asthma; some have visible conditions such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy or cleft lip and palate. Children with special health needs live, learn, work, play and actively participate in community life throughout our state. They do so because the families, neighbors, teachers, and health providers who touch their lives have joined to create an environment where the special needs of these children can be successfully met within their families and communities. With support which recognizes the unique strengths and needs of each child and family, the children thrive, grow and contribute to our communities. Through our local and state policy makers, the citizens of Minnesota have established a priority to develop a comprehensive, community-based, family-centered system of care to meet the needs of children with chronic illnesses and disabilities and their families. The system is a delicate web of family caregivers, community resources, providers, private payers and public programs. We are now entering an era of change and uncertainty as some threads of that web are altered. We must assure that our system of care, consisting of our health, education and human services systems, work together so the needs of vulnerable children are met.
