Education Series: Charter Schools, An Innovative AlternativeDeidre Donovan & Gyna Uhrlass
00:00 / 41:41

Education in New York City will forever be a hot topic. This season we're exploring various school options offered to New York City kids by sitting down with adults who have first hand experiences with them. Our guests will range from parents, teachers, and administrators.

 

As we wrap up this Education series, we thought we'd end it with mom of two, Priscilla Pan-Walton, who's currently a Charter School Principal in Queens and a native New Yorker. Priscilla shares a bit of her experience of going to NYC public schools throughout her childhood and why she decided after many years of teaching to open up her own school. It's enlightening to hear her perspective of how Charter Schools can be one solution to failing Public Schools, her views of curriculum, and where she thinks the problem lies in NYC schools in general. We hope this series further helps you along your journey on finding the best school option for your child and family.
