Joanne Jacobs On Charter Schools


FBLA urges all interested parties to go hear Joanne Jacobs, San Jose Mercury News writer turned charter school advocate, read from her new book, Our School, at the Reason Foundation. (3415 S. Sepulveda Blvd. #400, Los Angeles, just north of Sepulveda and Palms. RSVP to Mary Toledo at or 310-391-2245.)

Inside tip: she had called the book Riding the Carrot Salad until cooler heads prevailed.

Jacobs is a FOFB, even though we’ve never met. One of those internet friendships.

And here’s the deal–California schools and students affect everyone in the state, even if you don’t have kids or are never going to have kids. So sit up straight and pay attention. This will be on the final.
