Book of the Month
Over twenty years ago, the Minnesota legislature passed the first chartered school law in the nation. By all accounts, it shouldn't have happened. Today, 70 percent of the American public supports chartering, and over two million students attend over 5,600 chartered schools in forty-one states and the District of Columbia.
