A Charter School Story

By Jim Shon


A Charter School Story describes the challenges and successes in Hawaii’s efforts to create a charter school system. For two years Jim Shon was its chief administrator – charged not only with securing funding and amending Hawaii’s laws, but also with explaining how charter schools are different, and why they deserve our full support. If you are wondering what the charter school movement is all about, and where charters fit in the reform of public education, Shon’s chronicle of his stormy and controversial tenure is worth reading. If you are thinking of starting your own charter school, this book tells you what you are in for.

As you’re familiar, during these extraordinary times, we’ve taken on significant volume and have had to extend our turnaround times on U.S. orders over the last two weeks. As we manage that previous volume and continually receive new orders, we must extend our turnaround times further. As a result, we’re required to further extend the turnaround times for U.S. print orders. We expect to be back to traditional operating turnaround times in a few weeks and appreciate your business and support during this challenging time.

•U.S. orders for hardcover books are estimated to print in 24 business days
