    SPRINGFIELD, Va., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Charter schools and other

 schools, public charter schools, and other ideas being proposed in various
 communities around the country.  To evaluate whether these programs can
 provide opportunities for your community, you can obtain reports by the
 Congressional Research Service and the Department of Education.  The studies
 provide information about how many and what kind of charter schools have
 become operational, about those factors that facilitate or hinder the charter
