Is there anything more fun than a pre-k fade out debate? We’re going to have one.
Interesting analysis on low-income students, and middle income ones, and college participation.
Kate Walsh on the post-Janus landscape.

Guys, you are not going to believe this...the Waltons spend a lot on charter schools. Bill and Melinda Gates, too!* (Also, if these state charter groups are so powerful then why are charters constantly getting attacked in state legislatures and why do so many states have fake charter school laws to begin with?) It’s preposterous to argue charters have anything like the upper hand even given their growth (which has slowed since this deck was released). Also, by way of context, most charters don’t get philanthropy – it’s an 80-20 thing.
*Obvious disclosure, Bellwether receives funding from the Walton Family Foundation and has received Gates funding and the Gates Foundation is currently a client. All Bellwether clients and funders are posted on our website.
