Video: The Myths of Chartering

Zero Chance of passage

Guest Post by Ember Reichgott Junge


What a fun interview with Bob Bowdon of Choice Media TV, in New York City! We talked chartering and education issues from the 1990s to now, and he even included a 1997 C-Span clip of my presentation to President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore. I was in New York to participate in the Writer’s Digest conference, where my book, Zero Chance of Passage: The Pioneering Charter School Story was recognized as the 2013 Grand Prize Winner of the Self-Published Book Awards. Whether you are a long-time veteran in chartering and education or just curious to learn more, I think you’ll find this a fun conversation!


Watch the interview I recently did for Choice Media TV about the myths of chartering:






Former Minnesota State Senator Ember Reichgott Junge is author of the first charter school law in Minnesota and of the award-winning book  Zero Chance of Passage:  The Pioneering Charter School Story.

    Odd that most of the things she complains are myths are actually facts. Almost as if she’s more interested in defending failing charter schools than in the fact that they’re mostly failures.
