Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Leaving the laboratory

This NYT article says that public schools in Houston are trying to replicate the best parts of the charter model in all schools. They even have control schools so they can see if it works.

I LOVE THIS.

That was the whole point of charters. Besides competition, they’re supposed to be laboratories so that the public schools can watch and take what works best. Why is that not happening more often? I wish I wanted to move to Houston so I could try this with them.

    the assumption being that charters have the answers that the public schools need to acquire and that competition for public dollars is in the public interest (as opposed to private enterprise’s interest)
