Twitter Chat: Choosing Charter Schools—Why or Why Not?
Why did you choose a charter school? Why not? Whether you're a parent or a teacher, we want to hear from you about the motivations behind your school choice during an Education Week and Education Week Teacher Twitter chat tonight.
Are you a teacher or student with a penchant for science and wanted to be in a school focused on STEM? Or a parent of a child with special needs that you feel are better met in a traditional district school? Perhaps you're a teacher who values union protections offered by traditional district schools? Or maybe you are a parent disappointed in your neighborhood district school?
Whatever the reason, join us for a Twitter chat Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET to discuss the reasoning behind your school choice. I'll be moderating the chat via the Charters & Choice Twitter account with the hashtag #ewedchat.
So, what do you need to do to join in? Follow these four easy steps:
- Log in to Twitter by 8 p.m. ET
- Follow @ChartersNChoice, @educationweek, and @EdWeekTeacher
- Use the hashtag #ewedchat to read the discussion
- Tweet us your thoughts by using the hashtag #ewedchat
We'll see you in the Twittersphere at 8.
