Updated April 29

If the Biden Administration has its way, big changes could be in store for the nation’s charter schools.

Charter advocates say the proposed rules would make it harder to get new charters off the ground. What this means for school choice was front and center as The 74 and the Progressive Policy Institute presented an April 28 panel discussion: “Tell Them We Are Rising: Parental Choice in America.”

Here’s a full replay of the conversation: 

The panel featured insights from Atasha James, CEO of Legends Public Charter School; Ebony Lee, of Charter School Growth Fund; Dr. Howard Fuller, Professor Emeritus at Marquette University; and Earl Martin Phalen, CEO of Phalen Leadership Academies. Curtis Valentine, co-director of PPI’s Reinventing America’s Schools Project, moderated the conversation.
