"This is not about whether charter schools are the answer. There are charters that are great. There are charters that are lousy.

Educator Geoffrey Canada, who rose to national prominence as the head of the Harlem Children's Zone, speaks on the "Promise of Charter Schools" as part of the College of Education's 2015 Distinguished Lecture Series. The cover story in the 2015 issue was on "The Charter Challenge."
