"Charter Schools Week" recently passed, but the often contentious conversation around charter schools remains. It's time for a common sense take about the publicly-funded, independent schools that millions of American families choose for their children.
Dr. Charles Cole, III gives us a quick history lesson on the Federal Charter Schools Program and how the schools have become a political football as of late. Moving past the rhetoric, Dr. Cole leaves us with a common sense moment on charter schools, their funding and political backing, and what proposed changes to the program mean for families across the country.
Join the conversation, what do you think about public charter schools?
