What is a charter myth-conception? Of course, there's always another side to any politically charged story. This series will seek to tell the other side of the charter school story in a way that will bring context to what we believe are misconceptions about Charter Schools in general, and consequently misconceptions about high performing charter networks, like our own KIPP SoCal.
