Madison school district to consider alternatives to traditional public schools

Gayle Worland, via a kind reader's email:

The Madison School District will explore creating more charter schools, magnet schools, and schools-within-schools -- in part to help keep middle-class families in the district.

Superintendent Dan Nerad said Tuesday he plans to appoint a committee next month to study alternatives to the traditional public school.

The group will include district staff as well as members from the community and will work on the project for about a year, Nerad said Tuesday in a meeting with the State Journal editorial board.

"I don't know what they'll come back with, but it's something that I think is certainly worth investigating, and worth discussion," School Board member Arlene Silveira said of the committee. "It's kind of exciting -- there's so many ways to deliver education now."

Promising. We'll see how it plays out.
