Kickoff Event for the PA Charter Performance Center – Jan 13

Posted by Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) on January 5, 2021

Announcing the launch of the Pennsylvania Charter Performance Center!

The PA Charter Performance Center, a project of PCCY, is dedicated to advancing a Pennsylvania-specific, data-based conversation about charter school quality and equity. The Center seeks to improve the quality of education, especially for at-risk students, by producing unbiased, accurate, and timely information that will build momentum for the adoption of sound state-level charter school policy.

Please join us for our kickoff event on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 12:00 pm where we see what lessons we can learn from New Orleans. New Orleans radically remade its education system in the wake of Hurricane Katrina by closing nearly all traditional public schools and replacing them with charter schools. Doug Harris, author of the acclaimed Charter School City, will describe the outcomes and unintended consequences of this experiment in the Big Easy.

Register for what will be a lively discussion about charter schools and the role they play in educating our children. Click here to learn more about the PA Charter Performance Center and our work on behalf of PA’s children.
