The local control debate is just beginning
Mike’s post yesterday didn’t just ask whether unions have made local control untenable—it also sparked some fascinating and spirited responses in the comments section, with Randi Weingarten, Diane Ravitch, Grant Wiggins, and many others weighing in. Luckily, this conversation can continue in two weeks, when the Fordham Institute and Center for American Progress team up to host “Rethinking Education Governance in the 21st Century.” Luminaries from academia and the policy world will hash out the merits of the various pillars of our current governance structure—from school boards to mayoral control—and think through who should be charged with governing our nation’s schools in the years to come. Time and space are running low, so register now.
