Charters: neither Savior nor Satan

In the Kentucky School Advocate this month, [Page 27] KSBA Communications Director Brad Hughes wonders if school officials are listening to their customers; and whether schools failing to do so has contributed to the "claimed clamor" for charter schools in Kentucky. He challenges his KSBA readers to maintain schools that are responsive to the public.

Hughes also offers his reading of the charter school literature. It should sound familiar to KSN&C readers.
What I think I've learned [after reading numerous articles, research and op-eds] is that charter schools are neither the geat savior for frustrated parents and overregulated schools nor the great Satan against public education in the U.S. As with so many things, it's all in the details.
