Ball State University terminated three low-performing charter schools, but not to worry. More are on the way.
Despite the lack of demand, the state board of education invited charter school Carpe Diem to come to Fort Wayne. As veteran Fort Wayne journalist Karen Francisco put it, “Indiana supporters of corporate education reform are determined to force a charter school on Fort Wayne– whether the community wants one or not.”
The state charter board will hold a “hearing,” but apparently the most interested party is the charter’s prospective landlord. Read the article to see all the really cool connections between the charter board, the landlord, and politicians.
Carpe Diem is heavily dependent on computers, has very large class sizes, and is reportedly a favorite of ALEC.
Another step backward for American education.
