How are the current political and economic climates impacting the charter movement near you?

The pendulum is swinging. RttT, the ESEA reauthorization, Common Core Standards, and resultant state moves to chase federal funding during an economic downturn all provide new opportunities for charter schools.

How are today's politics and economics affecting the charter movement where you work? What legislation is moving in your state? Will your charter school or division see RttT or innovation funding? What is the public perception of charter schools' work where you live?

How is political and economic attention shaping charter schools near you?

Those sound like great ideas for schools

Thanks for the descriptions, Mark - I hope the charter proposers find ways to implement their visions -

How did the charters plan to start? For example, would they open K-12 all at once or start with certain grades - say 1st, 6th, and 9th -, graduate them, and then recruit new classes as the first classes progressed?

Best,
C

These schools would start all

These schools would start all at once K-12. Although this is difficult, we feel good planning a start up of all grades can be done at once.
