Tomorrow the House Education and Labor Committee will hold a hearing “to examine how supporting outstanding charter schools can help build an innovative, world-class American school system that educates all students to high levels.”
President Obama has emerged as a proponent of charter schools by calling on states to lift the restrictions that limit charter schools growth. Tomorrow’s hearing includes a gathering of charter school founders and directors who will likely make a strong case for charter schools.
Among the participants in tomorrow’s hearing are Steve Barr, Founder of Green Dot schools, John King, Director of Uncommon Schools in NYC, and Barbara O’Brien, Lt. Governor of Colorado. It might present a narrow perspective, but could lead to larger, more spirited discussions about charter schools.
