Education Series: Charter Schools
Education Series: Charter Schools

AIR DATE: August 30, 2011

There are people who see charter schools as the answer to our educational woes.  But others believe this system of schooling is more of a problem than a solution.  Plus, Nevada has fewer charter schools than other southwestern states, but Governor Brian Sandoval wants to change that.  What is the future of charter schools in Nevada?

My 3 children are in Explore Knowledge Academy Charter School. I am so pleased with them there. All of my children are working a minimum of one grade level ahead of their public school peers. The kids are NOT taught the test; they are taught to reason, analyze, and explain their answers. Having a Charter school for them is a blessing to me - they get a small class room private-school style education for the cost of lab fees and supplies.
