I'll be on leave from Education Week for the next month, and returning in mid-November. During that time the Charters & Choice space will be filled by a bunch of skilled guest bloggers, so keep the comments coming.
I'd also refer folks interested in charter and choice issues to a couple of terrific, related blogs on the EdWeek site, if you're not savvy to them already.
If you're keen on parent engagement and empowerment issues—parent-trigger topics and the like—check out Michele Molnar's K-12 Parents and the Public blog. And my colleague Jason Tomassini delves frequently and incisively into the world of charters and privatization on his Marketplace K-12 blog. He's got a recent item up, for instance, about a new study comparing public and private schools in India.
See you in mid-November.
