October Newsletter

This month we are featuring a new tool from the Delaware Department of Education entitled Charter School Teacher Recruitment and Selection Toolkit. This Toolkit is a great resource for charter school leaders. Aligned with Delaware’s human capital strategies and educator evaluation system, it provides easy access to best practices, procedures, examples from high-performing public charter schools around the country, and templates for charter school leaders to use and/or adapt.

Work Hard. Be Nice.: How Two Inspired Teachers Created the Most Promising Schools in America
When Mike Feinberg and Dave Levin signed up for Teach for America right after college and found themselves utter failures in the classroom, they vowed to remake themselves into superior educators. They did that-and more. In their early twenties, by sheer force of talent and determination never to take no for an answer, they created a wildly successful fifth-grade experience that would grow into the Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP), which today includes sixty-six schools in nineteen states and the District of Columbia.
