CSDC Board Vice-Chair to Salute 20 Years of Charters in Minnesota
(Hanover, MD, October 18, 2011) CSDC Board Vice-Chair Ember Reichgott Junge will deliver the keynote address at the Minnesota Charter Schools Conference in St. Paul on November 3, 2011.
The conference, with the theme “Celebrating 20 Years; Looking Forward 20 Years,” will examine the history of the revolutionary education movement that was launched with Minnesota’s passage of the nation’s first charter law in 1991, as well as discuss where the movement is headed over the next 20 years.
Reichgott Junge, who authored Minnesota’s pioneering law 20 years ago, chronicles its legislative journey in “Zero Chance of Passage: The Charter School Story,” due to be published in early 2012.
