Re: “Today's lesson: charters do not outperform unionized schools

The K-8 magnet schools in Chicago are open enrollment schools, in which the entire enrollment is by lottery. Magnet cluster schools are neighborhood schools that have a relatively small portion of the enrollment open to kids outside the neighborhood, also admitted by lottery.

There are only a few grade schools in CPS, such as the classic and gifted program schools, that admit student who must first take an admission test.

A magnet school and charter school might, in fact, be a very fair comparison because the entire enrollment for each type is open and depends on the parents taking the initiative to apply for admission.
