    There will be a protest in front of the Chicago Board of Education on Tuesday. Join with fed-up parents, teachers, students and community members from across Chicago at 125 S. Clark, in front of CPS, from 4-6pm for a brief march and action. One of the big issues is charter expansion.

      Talking about charters in their specific locations is key. Some states have programs that function; some do not. I wish it was so easy just to paint all charters with a broad brush like Laura is attempting to do, but it isn't.
