Stuck on the Starting Blocks: Despite Backing from Vocal Parents, Politicians of All Stripes, and a Billionaire with Deep Pockets, Washington State Can't Seem To Get Charter Schools Up and Running.
Boss, Suzie
Northwest Education, v6 n3 p32-36 Spr 2001
In Washington state, two initiatives and several bills allowing charter schools have failed since 1995, although support has been growing. Supporters feel that charter schools will keep parents connected to public education and prevent talented teachers from leaving the field. Opponents claim that charter schools divert resources away from public education and are not accountable to elected officials. (TD)
