Charter Schools Are Making “Least Bad Decision”… and Staying Remote

October 14, 2020

As readers of this blog realize I seldom agree with the founders of for profit charter schools. But.. as this quote from a profiteer and my earlier posts on this issue indicates, a couple of the major charter chains made the right decision this time.

Charter leaders say they’re responding to many of the same pressures facing districts, including the safety concerns of parents and staff, many of whom are Black and Latino, and the daunting challenge of teaching students during a pandemic no matter which path they choose.

“My mantra now is, what’s the least bad decision,” said Richard Buery, the president of Achievement First, a charter network in three states.

So in NYC the unions and the anti-union charter schools are on the same page: safety and caution are needed when so much is unknown and lives might be at stake.
