DC Charters

Sensible WaPo ed board take on school chief Janey’s call for a moratorium on charter schools in the city. Sure, there are some lousy charters in D.C. but (a) the DC Charter School Board is closing down schools and there are some other steps that should be taken to help address that (b) there are also many good ones and some truly outstanding ones, too, and a moratorium is a blunt instrument affecting all equally and (c) the notion of the District of Columbia Public Schools demanding more attention to quality is like the Hummer people demanding that automakers pay more attention to fuel efficiency, it’s hard to take too seriously.
