New Washington Post Education Reporter Gets It Wrong 

In today's story about the demographics of traditional public and charter schools Mr. Turque writes:

Reliable information was especially scarce when it came to the city's 72 charter schools, which are publicly funded but governed and operated by private, nonprofit boards.
The boards of charter schools are not private. While it may take a little effort to determine who serves on these boards and when they meet anyone can attend these sessions and minutes can be obtained from the D.C. Public Charter School Board.
If Mr. Turque is quoting from the Brookings Institution report then I question the accuracy of the entire study.
