Teaching and Learning is Not a Business. It’s a process

So this Charter School idea started out with the best of intentions.

Thing is..there is no reason that our regular public schools can’t be doing amazing things across the board. Some public schools are already amazing..I have seen them…

Local control and community involvement are key factors in making this kind of good school possible. Watch out for administrative consolidation and closing of small schools in order “to administer them better”.

Watch out for Charters that spread in corporate formation. Learning and teaching is a process..not a commodity…and this can get lost quickly if “business” is overly valued….
