Since he assumed the postition of Secretary of Education I have been reading that Arne Duncan is a proponent of charter schools. The A+ Schools report will provide info on the performance of local charter schools. I have not read anything so far to make me an unquestioning proponent of charters. In our area do we have more than two successful charters? Maybe three?

Will our specialized high schools and new 6-12 model schools be competition for charters? It seems likely.

I have not done enough reading on Secretary Duncan to find anything to explain his support of charters.
