One of the big pushes for education reform this year is to remove the limits on charter schools. While I have no problem with that as charter schools have often proven to produce great results to say the limit in and of itself is holding children's education back is far from the truth.
Tennessee just passed a charter limit increases last year. The old limit was 50 schools. The current limit is 90 schools.
How many charter schools are there currently in Tennessee? 22
The limit, in and of itself, is clearly not stopping failing schools from becoming charter schools. Possibly we need to dig a little deeper.
