Washington Post Article Continues the Conversation We Started in our Article in 2012 on No-Excuses Charter Schools
We always like to provide our readership with updated thoughts on articles we have published. Readers will remember the article in our 2012 issue of Volume 6 by Alice Ginsberg entitled “The Dog Ate My Homework: Embracing Risk in the Chilling Climate of No Excuses Schools,” that took a critical look at such schools. https://cedar.wwu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1149&context=jec
Recently, Valerie Strauss, an education reporter for the Washington Post, published an article, “Some ‘no-excuses’ charter schools say they are changing. Are they? Can they?” In the article, Strauss reflects on some recent exchanges of ideas on the possibility or impossibility of changes in these schools.
We invite thoughts and perspectives from our readers on this ongoing conversation.
