Nina Rees, president and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools wrote an article in US News &Workd Report explains how privately managed charter schools could bring up the test scores of poor and disadvantaged kids.


She begins her article by referring to her own child, who is neither poor nor disadvantaged. She then notes that one-third of the top high schools on the US News list of the nation’s best high schools are charter schools. Nowhere does she mention attrition or selectivity or suspensions. Instead she suggests that chRter schools are indeed the magic answer that the nation is waiting for.


Bottom line: If you want your child to get an awesome education, insist that your local school be rubbed by a corporate charter chain. Then all schools will be on the US News list!
