Virtual Back to School Day

Today is Virtual Back to School Day, sponsored by the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. The day features a series of online chats on charter topics. Readers can submit questions to the chatters.

The alliance notes that charter enrollment is growing in Detroit, where district teachers started the school year with a strike, and in New Orleans, where charter schools, which opened three weeks before district-run schools, have reached 90 percent of capacity.
