District will join group overseeing charters.

The relationship between public charter and traditional public schools has changed a lot in the few months since Governor Kasich was elected.  This story completely caught me off guard.  It seems like the pendulum has swung from traditional publics viewing charters as the enemy, to trying to get in on the game.  I am cautious of motives, however.  Why would Columbus City Schools want to get into the sponsorship game?  And how does this connect with Superintendent Gene Harris’ attempt to turn over the operations of one of the local high schools to a private management group?  All fascinating event unfurling here in Columbus and Ohio at large.  What’s next?  -Ed
