Question: Charter Schools and Meeting Local Kids

I am concerned that if my child goes to a charter school she will not know kids in her own neighborhood. I would love to hear from parents who have kids in charter schools. Was this a problem?

Yeah, I think it's a fair concern. I suspect you'll need to be more proactive than perhaps other parents need to be if you want to make those connections. The bus, school events, the lunchroom -- those are natural spots (that your child won't have) for meeting the other local kids and making local friendships. So if you're after those, seems like you'll need to take the initiative on your own a bit.
