Jason The Public School Guy, Neil Haley, and Jarrett will discuss Success Academy Charter Schools.
Success Academy is redefining what’s possible in public education. Our dual mission is to: Build exceptional, world-class public schools that prove that all children from all backgrounds can succeed in college and life; and serve as a catalyst and national model for education reform and help change public policies that prevent so many children from having access to opportunity. - See more at: http://www.successacademies.org/about/#sthash.dCVkin24.dpuf
The WA State Supreme Court ruled recently that charter schools created under the new education law I-1240 were unconstitutional. They do not fit under the definition of public schools ("common schools") as defined in the state constitution -- they do not have publicly elected governing bodies and aren't subject to the control of voters.
Wayne Au was a plaintiff in the lawsuit that challenged I-1240 and is here to talk with us today. Wayne Au is an Associate Professor of education at the University of Washington, Bothell and an editor for the social justice education magazine, Rethinking Schools.

One of the biggest debates going on in education today is the debate between charter schools and traditional public schools. In this episode we discuss charter schools and how they are different from public schools. We also discuss a 2009 study by Stanford University into the effectiveness of charter schools. We also give some commentary the debate and on public school reform in general.

A Light Shines in Harlem: New York's First Charter School and the Movement it Led (Chicago Press:Sept.2014) by Mary C. Bounds, forward by iconic civil and human rights icon, Dr. Wyatt Tee Walker, co-founder of Sisulu-Walker Charter School of Harlem.
Fifteen years after the first charter school , Sisulu-Walker ,opened in Harlem, there are now 197 charter schools serving 82,000 children--about 7.5% of all public school students. Most charters are performing better than there district counterparts. Students and parents are being given a meaningful choice of public schools. And the whole system is benefiting from charter schools' infusion of new ideas and urgency.
New York's experiment with charter schools is widely regarded as a success, but issues remain. Charters still receive less per -pupil funding than district schools.
This show is dedicated to
