The good, the bad, and the ugly

It’s been a very busy week for CER, and with a hat tip to Clint Eastwood we send along examples of the good, the bad and the ugly from this week's news.

Jeanne Allen’s latest piece in Forbes highlights the good – in fact the very good.   Alpha Academy in Fayetteville, North Carolina is innovating education oppurtunity and bringing exciting solutions to  schooling for the close to 1,000 students the serve, mainly minority and economically disadvantaged.  


The very bad and very ugly are highlighted in the Washington Post editorial, calling out the D.C. Deputy Mayor of Education for displacing and forcing the closure of a high performing pre-school. The Post  headline says it all,  “Children are suffering because D.C. won’t look out for public charter schools.”
