Hi Linda!

in NC we are seeing Charters contribute strongly to resegregation.
Louis Malfaro

Some history on the idea of charter schools as places of experimention vs. the market bases system we've ended up with: https://www.aft.org/ae/winter2014-2015/kahlenberg_potter

Thank you Jennifer and Jack! I wanted to hear more about what your research has said about charters and testing through the lens of racial equity in education.
Suzanne Miller (She/Her)
01:39:21
As long as Charters are not required to provide transportation or food, they can’t address equity.
Jennifer Berkshire
01:40:00
What a great question!!
Suzanne Miller (She/Her)
01:40:15
Magnets are a better way to achieve equity and desegregation than Charters. Magnets are part of the traditional public system.

Might need a follow up webinar!
Charles Johnson
01:42:05
Let’s do it, Jennifer!
Rachel Gunter Shapard
01:43:08
Agreed on Magnets if at the younger grades you can enter as a beginner with no knowledge or training.
Ally Surface
01:43:43
I agree on follow evidence based data, as long as the data is derived by many factors

We have lots of choice options in Dallas schools. Some are magnets, others are all girls schools, others IB, others Montesorri, etc
Holly Gaskill Bandel
01:48:07
Dallas ISD also has Transformation schools that are intentionally economically and racially/culturally diverse. There is no academic requirement even at the middle and high school levels.
George Mason
01:48:51
I attended a magnet high school in NYC. Brooklyn Tech. Been a strategy there for about 75 years. But now the test to get in is being challenged by the mayor for the outcomes not being adequate for racial and economic diversity
Rachel Gunter Shapard
01:49:04
Equity on entrance to magnets is key! Children wanting enter arts magnets shouldn’t be required to have had private dance or music lessons
Suzanne Miller (She/Her)
01:49:21
Yes! My 3rd grader is on his 4th year of Robotics electives!
Suzanne Miller (She/Her)
01:50:52
Rachel, that’s interesting… here’s our are based only on socio-economic diversity
Charles Luke

Thank you all for a great conversation! I look forward to the next time!
Dr. LaVerne Whitehead Reed

Great dialogue!,
Rachel Gunter Shapard
01:52:04
Duval County where we are has done a great job of making sure no previous knowledge/skill is required to enter K-5 and middle school magnets.
Annette Miller
01:52:10
Great conversation, I learned so much!
Suzanne Miller (She/Her)
01:53:01
