Upon his re-election in 2006, then-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Schools Chancellor Joel Klein offered the free use of underutilized school facilities to a bumper crop of charter schools opening that year—including my first.

My son George Reeder is in fifth grade at Harlem Success Academy 4. He’s part of the highest performing fifth grade class in the state. And yet, I have no idea where he’ll go to school next year.
