Chalkbeat “Roundtable” discussion on Eliz. Green controversial piece in which she called Success charters a model educational system. See what I just tweeted about it below.https://chalkbeat.org/posts/
us/2018/01/16/a-chalkbeat- roundtable-the-promise-and- perils-of-charter-networks- like-success-academy/The incredible bias of this piece in responding to critiques that the original piece was too biased makes me think that Chalkbeat editors must be trapped in a bubble w/o any awareness of how isolated they are.
leonie haimson (@leoniehaimson) Egregiously biased discussion fr/ 3 charter school founders, 2 who say district schools can be as good as charters (!), 1 parent criticizing both, and not a single charter critic. Biased selection exacerbates problems in @elizwgreen superficial encomium to Success. @carolburris twitter.com/chalkbeat/stat…

Leonie and Elizabeth used to be pretty friendly - I was also friendly with her.
