Ginia Bellafante, a weekly columnist for The New York Times, today cited the work of Ascend's network of college-preparatory charter schools in New York City. Ms. Bellafante notes in her column that "the Ascend Network, which educates some of the poorest children in the city in central Brooklyn, manages the incredibly difficult feat of leasing space for all six of its buildings with just a little more than $200,000 in philanthropic money on top of what it receives from the city."
Charter schools have figured prominently in the New York City mayoral race, with the two leading candidates expressing sharply divergent views on issues relating to co-location, rent-free occupancy in district school facilities, and increasing the cap on the maximum number of charters that can be granted. To reflect the strength of and popular support for charter schools, an estimated 17,000 charter school supporters marched across the Brooklyn Bridge on October 8.
In her column, Bellafante questioned the claims of charter advocates that the loss of free space in district school buildings would threaten the survival of charter schools in the city.
In her column this week, "The Charter School Fight," Ginia Bellafante cites the six schools our network operates in privately leased space in Brooklyn as evidence that charter schools can afford to pay rent. Ending the current policy of co-locating charter schools in district buildings would not, by her logic, threaten the sector's existence.

Recently, television reviewer for the New York Times, Gina Bellafante wrote an article about One Tree Hill's fifth season, and in it accusing the coming of age drama of displaying "an almost aggressive aversion to moralizing about teenage pregnancy."She's referring to Haley's (Bethany Joy Galleoti) recent pregnancy, claiming that it "[refuses] to lay out the grim consequences of premature motherhood, [and] wants to make fans on either end of the political spectrum stick their heads in fiery hampers."With the recent events in the media, including 16-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy, is One Tree Hill really biased in showing just the joyous side of young motherhood?
Bellafante also took offense to the lack of realism in Haley's struggles.She wrote, "Haley, a teacher, isn't applying for food stamps or stripping to keep her child in clean pajamas.She is living instead in a nicely appointed house, dealing with middle-aged problems."
Bellafante also pointed out that because the show skipped the college years, we did not get to see Haley go through all the struggles of pursuing her education while being a young mother.Bellafante wrote, "we never get to see how Haley balanced psych finals and colic, keg parties and vaccinations, and just having to say no, presumably, to any chance of a junior year abroad in a hedonistic Western European capital."
Surely, Bellafante has a point.However, we must take into consideration that One Tree Hill is a show that never really thrived in reality.In fact, this series is more of escapist, soapy fantasy.If one wants to watch a show depicting teenagers with real teenage problems, then head over to NBC's Friday Night Lights.
As for Haley's struggles, or lack thereof, One Tree Hill may have overlooked this, and all the pieces of Haley's life may seem unrealistically perfect.Nonetheless Bellafante admits that she can't resist the addictive nature of the series.
