District vs. Charter Is a Zero-Sum Game


“But schools are not sports teams. For students, education shouldn’t be a zero-sum game among adults. It doesn’t have to be. Adult labels can be put aside in favor of better schools for students. Some places are doing that. In a score of diverse communities, leaders from local school districts and high-performing charter schools are coming together to put students first.”

–Don Shalvey, “Choosing Excellent Schools—Not Charter Versus District” on Ed Week

“Charter and district sectors are often locked in a battle that hurts families. Too many students are falling through the cracks because advocates and policymakers are more focused on the fight between districts and charters than on making choice work for families.”

–Robin Lake, “Making School Choice Work Requires Leadership” on Edweek
