New Hampshire now has 25 of these alternative public schools, after a spate of rapid growth. We’ll look at some of the themes raised in NHPR’s recent series, A Growing Choice.  These include how charter schools are funded, who their students are, and what overall role they play in public education. 

Guests:

  • Michael Brindley - Morning Edition producer at NHPR
  • Paul Leather - Deputy Commission of Education in the N.H. Dept. of Education
  • Tom Raffio - Chairman of the N.H. State Board of Education
