Charter School Hat Trick…And, New (Major League?) Charter School Guidance

Great news from Buffalo and Pennsylvania.  Pretty good news from Kansas City.

Also, updated charter school guidance from the Department of Education.  Several changes, but most important, in Eduwonk’s view, the new guidance clarifies that a charter school that receives funds under the federal charter school program and has more applicants than seats can weight its lottery in favor of students seeking to change schools under No Child Left Behind’s public school choice provisions.

A Department of Ed aide tells Eduwonk that some school districts are planning on getting into charters “big time” as a way to address supply problems.  Considering the source, though, Eduwonk can only wonder, is this major league?

  1. A few days ago I stumbled upon your site while searching aol for bowling tips/tricks. Your site wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, but it was packed with information otherwise. Now I find myself continuing to read more and more posts and I love it!
