The Autonomy to Choose

More about charter schools from the Obama administration:

The document also gives charters flexibility to develop their own teacher and principal evaluation systems, as long as they adhere to a number of standards.

The Obama administration announced last year that it would offer states waivers from the most onerous provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act. States had to agree to adopt college- and career-ready standards, and craft guidelines for teacher and principal evaluation, which were to be linked to gains in student achievement.

The autonomy to create their own teacher evaluation systems.

The autonomy to create their own curriculum.

The autonomy to choose.

Why are these “waivers” only extended to charter schools and why is the Obama administration so concentrated on making it easier for charter schools to succeed?

Keep watch. Change is gonna coming.
