KIPP Ujima in Baltimore gets national attention
The confrontation between the Baltimore Teachers Union and the KIPP middle school in Baltimore has gotten a lot of attention in the past several weeks as it did on this blog when I first wrote about it in The Sun.
This morning, CNN did a report on the issue, highlighting that KIPP laid off several teachers and shortened its school day in order to adhere to the union contract. The CNN report followed others in the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and other papers.
And today, David Miller, from the Maryland Charter School Network was asked to blog for the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. His post is here : http://www.publiccharters.org/node/1141.
He says that the union shouldn't try to stifle the growth of the KIPP school.
