What We’re Watching: Should Charter Schools Be Allowed to Push Out Difficult Kids?

Success Academy charter schools are among the highest-performing schools in New York City. Some charge that the schools routinely push out students who are difficult to manage in the classroom. In this video, produced by Reason magazine, Nick Gillespie talks with Robert Pondiscio about the charges against Success Academy. They also discuss whether poor kids should have the same right to disruption-free schools as rich kids

Pondiscio wrote about this topic in “Are Disruption-Free Schools Only for the Rich?

An article by Charles Sahm on “What Explains Success at Success Academy?” appears in the Summer 2015 issue of Education Next.
