Eric Mahmoud & Charter School Expansion
March 9, 2012
The Minneapolis School Board has voted to expand charter school options available to families in the city. Eric Mahmoud, co-founder of Harvest Prep 20 years ago (and more recently, Best Academy) will have the opportunity to open four new charter schools over the next 10 years. Mahmoud will attempt to duplicate the success of his schools, where students have exceeded the state averages in math and reading.
He spoke with KFAI’s Michelle Alimoradi and Bob Hines, who asked him to describe what happened.
