Charter Politics

Snarky but insightful editorial from Nevada:

But if this foot-dragging on charter schools continues, it will only hasten the day when Nevadans demand far broader and more meaningful alternatives to the current, dysfunctional public school monopoly.

And C-Span has a discussion about Democrats and charter schools that you can watch online.

  1. “The state Board of Education is overwhelmed by applications to create new charter schools,” is not necessarily evidence of demand for such schools. Depending on the regulations set up by the state, the large number of applications to the state could simply indicate a demand for charters by people who want to make a lot of money for themselves and their friends and relatives while serving as “educators.” Unfortunately, the kids suffer. Unfettered free market is not the way to go with charter schools.
