Think Tank + Sponsoring Charter Schools = Harder Than It Looks

Don’t miss another vigorous, frank, and eye-opening discussion of Fordham’s own experience authorizing charter schools in Ohio—and how that compares to authorizing elsewhere. Join us Thursday, August 26 from 3:30 to 5:00 pm in Fordham’s DC office (1016 16th St. NW, 7th Floor), where Fordham Vice President of Ohio Policy and co-author of Ohio’s Education Reform Challenges: Lessons from the Frontlines Terry Ryan will discuss Fordham’s experience as an authorizer of charter schools on-the-ground in Ohio. Fordham President Chester E. Finn, Jr. (and co-author) will moderate the discussion, and comments will follow from Alex Medler, Joey Gustafson, and Perry White, all folks with extensive experience in the charter world. 

Please RSVP to or 202-223-5452.
