Four Charter Schools In Arizona

| Thanks for calling my attention to this study. I found it thoughtful and balanced. It contained no surprises, being generally consistent with my observations of the charter movement in Florida.|
Here, however, there is considerable evidence that, perhaps unlike the situation in Arizona, individuals in the state legislature and in the governor's office seem to be interested in manipulating the charter movement so as to maximize their negative impact on the public schools, with an eye toward the ultimate privatization of the whole institution.
