People: Blondean's Charter Conversion Experience

There's an interesting little Q and A with former Vallas deputy Blondean Davis about her conversion to charters and eventual opening of a charter (Blondean Davis, CEO of Southland Prep Charter).As you may recall, she left CPS in 2002 and became superintendent of Mattson ESD 162.  The new charter is a high school -- a direct attack on Rich Township HSD 227. Check it out.  Do you think it's OK for an elementary school district to open a high school charter?
