School Choice and Obama’s New Education Secretary: New at Reason

John King, Jr. was confirmed by the Senate as President Obama’s newest education secretary this week. While his policy impact may be minimal in the little time he has, his tenure does represent a welcome normalization of school choice.

Lisa Snell explains:

John King is the first school principal and charter school founder to ever reach the top education position. He deserves his charter school accolades.  He founded Roxbury Preparatory Charter School in Boston and then served as the managing director at Uncommon Schools charter school network, which now has 44 schools serving more than 14,000 disadvantaged students. In 2013 Uncommon Schools won the Broad Prize for urban charter schools for serving 98 percent African American and Hispanic students and closing the income and ethnic achievement gaps at four times the rate of other large charter school organizations across the country. In addition, Uncommon Schools’ graduates earn bachelor’s degrees at five times the rate of low-income students nationally.
