During the first segment of Episode 4, the crew discusses a recent piece by Valerie Strauss entitled: Linda Darling-Hammond VS Diane Ravitch and Carol Burris (https://wapo.st/2ziklcc)
Darling-Hammond's side takes exception in this piece that there is room for charters in America. She takes up "the issues of choice in public education from a different perspective from the one that has been driving debates since the election of President Trump."
This piece comes in response to what Diane Ravitch wrote about charter schools: Does it matter who operates America’s public schools? (https://wapo.st/2qU3iZF)
"That’s a central question in the national debate about education and the movement to find alternatives to school districts that are publicly funded and operated. While charter schools are publicly funded, they are privately operated and are not required in most places to be as transparent as publicly operated schools. The public also has little say in key operations of private and public schools that accept publicly funded vouchers."
