I’m excited and honored to have been guest blogger at Eduwonk yesterday. I hope you’ll visit Andrew Rotherham’s blog and give it a read. As always with our work at Education Evolving, we welcome your feedback.
The guest blog concludes, "Teachers could be the social entrepreneurs we need for K-12. So why not open the opportunity for interested teachers to show us how they would run schools? . . . Better that than sticking exclusively to a top-down management system and finding we were famously wrong."
Chartering in Minnesota will be a topic of focus on this blog in 2016. We'll cover the innovation occurring in the sector's schools, new starts and school closures, personnel changes, legislative and rule making activity, the authorizer review process, and more.
