CON: Say ‘no thanks’ to charter schools – D. Ravitch

Ravitch, Diane.  “CON: Say ‘no thanks’ to charter schools.”  Montgomery Advisor.  2012, February 11.  Retrieved from: http://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com/article/20120212/OPINION0101/202120305/CON-Say-no-thanks-charter-schools?odyssey=mod%7Cnewswell%7Ctext%7CFrontpage%7Cs

Education expert and former charter school advocate outlines why the state of Alabama should not adopt the educational reform that Washington D.C. adopted under Michelle Rhee.  They simply don’t work.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress, which is the gold standard of education testing, shows that D.C. has the biggest achievement gap between black and white students in the nation, double the size of Alabama’s….  Charter schools haven’t helped other states and they won’t help Alabama.
