There's been some interesting responses to the August 15 talk about teachers, charter schools, and unions -- a relatively new idea for Chicago. I'm still hoping for more. But if you weren't there you can listen to part of it at AlderTrack (here), and more to come. So far as I've listened, Klonsky (pictured) is introducing the idea that charters actually come from unions -- Al Shanker, specifically -- and were opposed by conservatives. He also describes how small schools, like charters, may have been co-opted but aren't necessarily bad ideas. Check it out.
