I Publish at Real Clear Education

Today, I had a column posted at Real Clear Education. In it, I make the argument that assuming the state will see significant charter school reform because of all the talk nationally about charter school reform in Ohio is a mistake, given the political power of the poor performing charter schools.

We are expected to see the emergence of a single vehicle for charter school reform today in the Ohio Senate. We'll see just how comprehensive it ends up being after the political powers that be get their hands on it in conference committee or behind closed doors.

While these legislative measures offer the state's first glimmer of hope for charter reform in years, I know how powerful these guys are. We can take nothing for granted. Nothing.
