Charter vs. Public: Misconceptions

Posted by Steve Evangelista in The Alumni Blog on Feb 10, 2014

I'm writing with Margaret Ryan on the eve of a forum about inequities in public education. We chose specifically to focus this panel discussion and roundtable on public school education, and not just charter school education, even though we have been running a charter school for the past nine years. We have heard some concerns such as, "So this is a charter school panel. When is the public school panel?"

Let’s get a couple of things out of the way: inequity in public education is not a charters vs. public issue (it’s much bigger); and charter schools are public schools. Charters and district schools are indeed administered differently, and charters can do some things that district public schools cannot do.
