A key component of Charters 2.0 is the replication of high-quality charter schools. To that end, on December 4th, CSP hosted national experts Daryl Cobb of the Charter School Growth Fund and Jim Ford, formerly of the National Council of La Raza and now a consultant helping quality charter schools replicate, who both led an engaging discussion on the subject of growing Minnesota’s home-grown charter successes.
Last week, CSP’s Legislative Luncheon featured Rep. Sondra Erickson, GOP leader on the Education Policy Committee in the Minnesota House (and former chair of the committee) as well as presentations by CSP staff on Charters 2.0 and the new CSP Issue Brief on Minnesota’s new accountability system (MMR/FR). The event was held at the beautiful Cornerstone Montessori Elementary School on St. Paul’s East Side, a facility that also houses the Montessori Training Center of Minnesota.
