Indianapolis Superintendent Lewis Ferebee says, “I think that neighborhood schools and charter schools can coexist. I don’t think it has to be one or the other."
With the way he partners with charters and the community and makes sure that his neighborhood schools remain vital centers of learning, Ferebee is effectively leveraging charters as an equal partner in raising student achievement and bolstering Indianapolis’ public school sector.
Ferebee discussed his work with reporter Arianna Prothero at Education Week's Leaders to Learn From event in Washington, D.C. on March 11, 2016. ____________________
