learning in the city

I have two family members and the boyfriend involved in charter school/education reform work in Upstate NY. I couldn't be prouder of their investment. The Rochester daily recently ran a series on True North Rochester Prep and you can see J in it toward the end of the clips on that school. Despite the skeptics, there is a growing chorus of voices recognizing that these schools offer families choices and alternatives to the existing system of education in their communities. There are some bad charter schools. There are some bad traditional public schools. (Charter schools ARE public schools). There are also some amazing charters like those run by Uncommon Schools, Inc.
