IDEA Public Schools, a charter school network with more than 20,000 students in 36 schools throughout Texas, has sent 100% of its graduates to college for seven years straight. Each year the network hosts a College Signing Day when seniors reveal which college they’ll be attending. Richard Whitmire took this short video yesterday at this year’s event.

There are more photos of the event here at the network’s Facebook page.

One IDEA senior who will be attending Harvard next year is featured here.

There are lots of videos from college signing day in previous years on Youtube.

Some of Richard Whitmire’s articles for Education Next on charter schools and other topics can be found herehere and here.
