How to Close Public Schools: A Guide

by Diane Ravitch, 4/7/13

Just in case you have been wondering what is the best way to shut down your local public schools, the Broad Foundation has thoughtfully provided a guide to help you.

It has assembled all sorts of useful information about how to deal with community opposition, how to engage stakeholders, how to make your case, how to get the right leadership, and how to pack up and move out.

Some well-known school districts–perhaps yours?–contributed to the writing of the guide.

Presumably some of the many superintendents who were trained in the unaccredited Broad Superintendents Academy have this guide in their desk.

Read it and be forewarned. Your own public school may be next.
