In a discussion of his new book, On the Rocketship: How Top Charter Schools are Pushing the Envelope, veteran reporter and former USA TODAY editorial writer Richard Whitmire spotlights the nonprofit Rocketship Education network of public elementary charter schools.

Whitmire, who tracked Rocketship through an entire school year fraught with change and controversy, examines the group’s beginnings, its growing pains, and why some see it as an innovative model for improving public education for lower-income urban students.

The event – co-presented by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation – is part of the KC Education Speaker Series, which brings leading thinkers in education to Kansas City audiences.
