Charter schools are supposed to be for everyone – but are they? Charters are public but privately run and a new book questions whether some create barriers to applying or attending. The book is “School’s Choice: How Charter Schools Control Access and Shape Enrollment.” CPR education reporter Jenny Brundin speaks with the co-authors. Wagma Mommandi and Kevin Welner of CU Boulder. Later, we hear a different view from Dan Schaller, president of the Colorado League of Charter Schools.
