Fast Break and Seeds of Change

Two new analyses of charter schooling out from PPI. In Fast Break In Indianapolis, analyst Bryan Hassel takes a look at the charter experience in Indianapolis where the mayor, Democrat Bart Peterson, is chartering schools. In Seeds of Change In The Big Apple, analyst Robin Lake takes a look at the charter experience in New York City. Both reports are preliminary but offer plenty of insights, cautions, and recommendations.

Previous analyses of state and urban charter experiences include CA (Catching the Wave), MN (Ripples of Innovation), and AZ (Rugged Frontier). Look for Ohio and Texas late this year.
