Three things to read this weekend

  • This column, by Clare Higgins, former Northampton mayor, on the conflict in charter schools and their funding.
  • This article from Salon, on the underserving of marginalized kids by charter schools, with this great quote by NYCLU:  “All kids have a right to an education, not just the ones who are easy.”
  • This column from the New York Times, with probably the most insightful view on parental opt out of standardized testing that I've read yet. 

And one more! 
  • This article from Holy Cross professor Jack Schneider on how public schools' main issue may be that of branding.
