Charter School Grants Draw Fire

The Wichita Eagle’s editorial board takes aim at grants recently distributed to charter school start-ups. It would truly be unfortunate if the idea of charter schools got distracted by shady business practices or, more likely, the old conservative-versus-moderate debate. There’s no particular ideology that is inherent to charter schools. The first state to use them was Minnesota, a famously “blue” state, and Arizona, a “red” one by most accounts, makes heavy use of them. There’s plenty of room in charter schools for a wide range of experimentation.
