Ending charter wars: ‘The problem is the problem’
Perhaps that heedless attempt to expand charters is history. Board-chair candidate Hupfeld has a two-part proposal for ending our charter wars: He would only support charters — like the Hupfeld Academy — that serve an entire attendance zone, and he would expand enterprise schools. While I support Hupfeld’s call for charters that serve entire high-poverty neighborhoods, I doubt we will find any that will accept such a challenge. My main hope rests in his enterprise proposal.
