When It Comes To Charter Schools, Kentucky Is Doing It Wrong, Thanks to Influence from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools
Who would attempt to create a new school knowing that they have no guarantee of funding?
The first charter school law in America was enacted in 1991 in Minnesota. A quarter of a century later, there are nearly three million students attending more than 7,000 charter schools in 43 states and the District of Columbia. But there’s a right way and a wrong way for a state to join the charter school movement. And despite the prevailing winds, Kentucky appears to be about to do it the wrong way.
