Understand the charter school debate in just 2 minutes
My colleague Nick Anderson, the Post's national education reporter, has done a terrific job summing up the complex debate over charter schools in his story about two recent charter studies with very different results. This is the best 800-word update on charters I have ever seen, and frees me from my promise to bring you up to date on the reaction to one of the studies, by Carolyn Hoxby. I was too lazy and confused to get that done. Nick saved me. To make up for that lapse, I will be writing much about charters soon, including a blog post tomorrow on a way President Obama could bring both sides of the charter debate together in a joint effort on a particular issue that would help everybody. There is other good stuff on our education page right now.
