Cash for 'clunker' schools

Inspired by the feds’ “Cash for Clunkers” program, which Congress wants to give another $2 billion, Brooks Garber of National Alliance for Public Charter Schools calls for using turnaround funds to replace clunker schools with new schools.

Instead of just pouring countless resources into “turning around” certain schools, we should use the federal school turnaround resources to help create new high quality successful schools, especially replicating public charter schools that are already excelling.

Of course, the new schools will have to educate the old students.
