Evil Geniuses At Top Universities Want Your Schools

7unichartersprestonThere's a big article in this week's EdWeek about universities' increasing efforts at school reform, focusing on the University of Chicago which currently runs several charter schools on Chicago's South Side. I know, I know.  They're evil academic geniuses out to ruin a shining example of urban education and gut teacher job protections.  I get it.  Still, there are some tidbits you might want to check out.  In addition to Chicago, Stanford University, the University of California, San Diego, and the University of New Orleans are also running schools.  And many other universities in other places are authorizing but not running charters.
