"The Founders" chronicles High Performing Charter Schools
The 74 recently released The Founders by Richard Whitmire.
The book chronicles the history of high-performing charter schools. This is the story of the visionaries who rewrote the rules – and how those same pioneers are now pushing to reinvent American education yet again.
NAPCS shared an excerpt from the book (Texas' Great IDEA) on their blog and you can visit thefounders.the74million.org to download the PDF and to view the oral history, including an interview with Nina Rees, NAPCS President.
