The Charter School Challenge

Understanding the complexity of the Charter School movement, and the so called "school reform" movement is an important step in defending public education.  This week the Sacramento Bee has been running a series by various advocates of "school choice".  Most of these efforts are anti teacher union.   I and Seth Sandronsky wrote a response to one of these.

School Choice Does Not Respond to Problem of Poverty


Ben Boychuk trumpets school choice, but at the same time, he ignores that a majority of kids in U.S. public schools live in poverty.


Leo Casey of the Shanker Institute has just published a well informed piece on Charter Schools.
I recommend it for your reading.
