charter schools debated

imageI would have to say that I agree with much of what Ravitch is putting forward in this piece..but would like to point out that while poverty and segregation are roadblocks to equitable schools for all..I think we miss the elephant in the room if we don’t talk about about where that poverty and segregation flows from. We need to get at the source of the flow and figure things out from there.

So..what is the source ?

Once again..the most important question facing us is “what is school for?” or perhaps “who is school for?”
