Devil in the Details

The indispensible Education Next has a good article on how the traditional public school system is playing dirty in an effort to keep charter schools from succeeding. When you consider all of the underhanded tactics being used to sucker-punch charter schools—all in an effort to protect the bureacratic turf of the public school monopoly—you begin to realize how deeply sick the current system has become. Once again, they’re sacrificing the interests of children so that adults can score a political victory.

Bonus:  A quick glance at Figure One in the article shows that South Carolina is the “winner” of another dubious distinction.
