City Inside/Out: Charter Schools
City Inside/Out: Charter Schools
This November, Washington voters will decide, for the fourth time, if charter schools should be allowed in our state. Supporters of Initiative 1240 say our school system needs help, and that with 41 other states already allowing charters, we are falling behind in education innovation. Charter school opponents disagree, calling the effort a distraction at a time when education funding is already in turmoil. We visit a charter school in Portland, Oregon and hear from both sides. Don`t miss our studio debate with I-1240 proponent Shannon Campion, who is also the executive director of Stand for Children Washington, and I-1240 opponent Melissa Westbrook, an education activist and blogger at Save Seattle Schools.
