For those who support charter schools, why not direct that money and effort into charter camps: summer and vacation programming for children.
Charter camps have the potential to introduce a whole new way of learning and thinking with innovative summer programming for every child who is interested.
Programs like these have the opportunity to elevate communities and inspire students.
Also, we know that schools with strong union, community, and government support do well. Massachusetts is an example of this. While we direct charter efforts towards summer programming, we can also continue and better direct resources towards building dynamic public schools for every child.
