Charter school expert Dr. Howard Fuller provided the Kentucky House’s Education Committee lots of frank food for thought on February 14, 2012. He didn’t gloss over things, and he didn’t make charter schools out as a magic fix to everything. He did make a strong case that charter schools are a valuable option in places where good charter school laws have been enacted and that Kentucky, as a charter late-comer, can benefit from the mistakes of others if we set up charter schools now.
Fuller is a co-founder of the Black Alliance for Educational Options. He has been involved with the charter school movement since the beginning. Dr. Fuller has lots of experience with school choice options in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
