District Pulls Charter of Los Angeles School. Good news for charter opponents: The Valley Community Charter School lost its charter for failing to improve student test scores. Bad news for charter opponents: The school's curriculum was based on the principles of John Dewey, with a lot of discovery learning and progressive education features.Would that districts moved that fast with regular public schools!
Also, don't forget that the coloful Carnival of Education is going on the road. This week it will be hosted by Jenny D. Let's all make the Carnival a continuing success.
