Washington Post Out To Kill Charter School Movement 

Theola Labbe of the Washington Post has an amazing article today about families scrambling to find new schools for their kids that attended the New School for Enterprise and Development and Sasha Bruce Public Charter Schools which were recently closed by the D.C. Public Charter School Board.

Any parent caught by surprise by the shuttering of these school with 2 weeks to go before the start of the new school year should not be a parent.

The tone of the piece is that closing bad schools is bad. No wonder education in D.C. is in that state that it is.

By the way, there are still some spaces for 9th graders at the William E. Doar, Jr. Public Charter School for the Performing Arts.
