Charting The Waters
It's a question you hear a lot, especially if you have young children and live on the Missouri side of the state line: Where are you sending your kids to school?
We explore the world of charter schools — they're getting so big in KC that even the district is opening one. Who chooses charter schools and why? Are charters bringing on a new era of thriving public education in KC or taking away from struggling district schools? Are they integrating urban neighborhoods or segregating communities in new way?
