Everything has a source.
The source of the mighty Mississippi River is the crystal clear waters of Lake Itasca as the water flows over a row of stones.
The Source of Chartered Public Schools is found in the innovation goals articulated in Minnesota’s first in the nation charter school law.
Whether it be a river or ideals codified in law, it is the source of things that provide inspiration, opportunities, and challenges. The source of things provide a beginning place for what can become over time and space. We know what the waters of the Mississippi River becomes over space and time. What chartered public schools become over time is still a work in progress.
Today, and everyday, we encourage everyone in our chartered public schools to look back at the goals in Minnesota’s charter school law and remember that INNOVATION is the source for the existence of chartered public schools.
