Charter School Results Getting Federal Notice

Posted by on June 10, 2009

[This post was originally written for my employer’s blog, Show-Me Daily.]

I came across this story about charter school advocates being heard by the House Education and Labor Committee in Washington, D.C.

One of the wonderful points of focus in this piece highlights the benefits of charter innovation, which can then be adopted by other schools. This is precisely the sort of progress promised by charter school advocates.

Particularly encouraging is the following quote:

“Outstanding charter schools are proving that low-income and minority kids can achieve at the highest levels, graduate from college and thrive as adults,” said U.S. Rep. George Miller (D-CA), chair of the committee.

With the data on the side of charter advocates, the movement toward more charter schools is happily gaining inertia.
