Share On the Rocketship: Expanding the high-quality charter school movement

Event Details

Richard Whitmire’s forthcoming book, On the Rocketship: How Top Charter Schools are Pushing the Envelopeis “the best account yet of what is happening with charters,” says the Washington Post’s Jay Mathews. But big questions still abound: Can Rocketship and other high-performing schools scale-up quickly a la the “Fibonacci sequence”? Can charters do so without falling into the pitfalls of the past? Will struggling urban areas embrace this form of school choice? What about smug suburbs?
 
Join the Fordham Institute for a conversation with Whitmire and a panel of experts about his book, the Rocketship network, and the future of charter schooling.
