The slightly-cranky voice navigating the world of educational “reform” while trying to still pursue the mission of providing quality education.



Charter Health Checkup

Posted: 11 Mar 2016 04:09 AM PST

It’s that time of year again, I guess, for the National Alliance for Public [sic] Charter Schools to issue its annual report of the Health of the Charter Public [sic] School Movement.

they’re scoring and ranking states, because remember– when you go to the doctor, it doesn’t matter how healthy you are, only whether you are more or less healthy than the other patients in the office.

There is some interesting-ish information to be gleaned from the report, but the report is 180 pages long, so if you want the full effect, you are going to have to read it all yourself. This time I’m not doing it for you.
