Letters: In Defense Of Charter Schools









The charter school mistake

(Los Angeles Times) Also October 5, 2013 Re "The charter mistake," Opinion, Oct. 1 To say I am disappointed by Diane Ravitch's Op-Ed article is an understatement. Many of her assertions regarding charter schools are offensive to the parents and educators who have created some amazing charters. The fact remains: Los Angeles parents are choosing charter schools in high numbers, and they are producing academic results for students. As independent, tuition-free public schools, charters disproportionately serve low-income students incredibly well. Charters are accountable to taxpayers and the state and federal government for results.

Pauline Liu: New charter school ahead for Warwick?; meeting tonight






In so doing, theyll highlight a key issue in this years mayoral race: whether New York City will side with kids and push for good schools or side with unions and keep rotten ones going. Yes, the city has seen rallies before. But usually these have been secretly organized by the teachers unions or their allies. Not Tuesday. Thats when real moms, dads and kids will be out fighting for charters.
