Program

Helene Davis introduced Bruce Fuller, a noted expert on education policy, to speak on “Charter Schools – Policy Logic, Growth, and Results.”  He described the motivations behind the creation of charter schools beginning in the 80’s and 90’s.  He showed how much charters have grown since the first California charter was started in 1993.  While charter schools overall have about 6% of the students in California, they are not distributed uniformly and represent a much higher percentage in areas such as Los Angeles Unified where one in five students is in a charter school.  In the case of LA Unified this exacerbates funding issues stemming from declining enrollment as their overall student base is decreasing, and more of those students and the associated funding go to charter schools.  This makes it challenging to pay for legacy expenses such as pension obligations. 
 
He then talked about the mechanics of how charter schools work in California and described the two types of charters, conversion charters and start up charters.  Conversion charters, where a standard public school is converted to a charter school, tend to be more common in high income communities, and start up charters, where a new school is created, tend to be more common in lower income communities.
 
He then turned to the question of how well charters have performed.  He said most people want a simple conclusion that charters are good or charters are bad.  However, the actual situation is more complex.  There is enormous variation in charter schools and great variations in local conditions.  A 2014 Stanford study suggested that on average charter school students did slightly better than their peers in traditional public schools but students did worse in one third of the charter schools.  Moreover, charters tend to select more able kids and engaged parents even in lower income communities according to a 2015 UC Berkeley study. He wrapped up his presentation by looking at how charter schools might work better identifying factors such as skilled central management combined with flexibility for teachers and a commitment to engaging, caring for, and lifting all students.

Sunday evening August 14, beginning at 6PM, is the date for a very special Global Elegance on the grounds of an English Cotswold style manor home, a four acre estate that dates from 1929.
 
Every year Global elegance is a magical evening to gather for fellowship and a wonderful meal at a unique venue.
 
Registration is now open. Rotarians, family and friends are all invited. We have 175 tickets available at $175, a price unchanged from previous years.  Sign up on line, purchase your tickets by credit card, or bring a check to our weekly meetings.
 
See the Global Elegance 2016 invitation package, a PDF that gives details of the event and includes an order form to use if you prefer to mail, or bring your check to a weekly meeting.
 
Global Elegance is Cupertino Rotary’s annual evening affair and primary fundraiser for World Community Service projects that address humanitarian needs and support education from China and India, to Latin America and Africa.
