Charter schools vs. public schools

There have been countless debates about whether charter schools can improve public education. On Tuesday night, WNYC hosted a forum with parents, students, and teachers from charter schools and two regular public schools to talk about how their schools are different, and how they’re serving their students. WNYC’s Beth Fertig and Arun Venugopal hosted the event.

Students, parents and teachers from Harlem schools Future Leaders Institute Charter and PS 242 explored whether charters are helping or hurting public education for all students.
