Since I moved back to DC, I have been very interested in DC’s charter movement. Charters now educate something like 40% of the kids in DC, and new charters seem to be sprouting up every year.
But if there’s a great resource for profiling and comparing DC’s charter schools, I haven’t found it. Only through talking to people “in the know” in the ed reform movement have I been able to learn about which schools are generally regarded as among the best (the KIPPs, Haynes, DC Prep, SEED, Chavez, maybe more???) and which are generally regarded as crappy.
Why is it so difficult to find this information?
Shouldn’t some site that provides info about all of DC’s charters for parents, teachers, and educators exist?
