Michael Van Beek, director of education policy, was a guest on “The Tony Conley Show” on WILS AM1320 in Lansing this morning, talking about a new study from Stanford University that shows charter public schools in Michigan are, as he has written, a “smashing success.”

During the same program, Doug Pratt, director of public affairs for the Michigan Education Association, told Conley that what is working to make these charter public schools successful should be applied to all public schools.
