Hundreds of parents, teachers and principals packed the Barnes Tennis Center in Point Loma last night to hear a panel discuss a provocative question: Are charter schools a better way?

The Union-Tribune summed up the event well in its article. If you want more of the play-by-play on everything from tenure to how charters are funded, you can also read the tweets by me and others at the event, including Point Loma teacher Jennifer Roberts and parent blogger Paul Bowers, under the hashtag #plcs.

And if you’re wondering why Point Loma is talking about charter schools in the first place, check out my earlier article about why parents in this coastal neighborhood are seeking more autonomy for their schools.
