Another Vote for Neighborhood Schools

Listener Ben Dorney wrote us with this reaction to our parent panel on Friday, August 9:

My son is entering the 2nd grade at Hamilton Elementary/Middle School.  I don't know if that is the K-8 school maligned by Sheila Ebelein at the beginning of the piece, but her negative description does not match my experience.

We have recess, arts and music programs, an active PTO, and teachers and administrators who love and respect kids.

Thank you Khalilah Harris for challenging the idea that charters have freedoms that we cannot obtain within the public system.
