Under the Dome reports that the NC Center for Public Policy Research (NCCPRR) has recently won two awards from a coalition of like minded (leftist) think tanks called the Governmental Research Association (GRA) for a report it released recently criticizing charter schools.
Well, guess what? The head of the NCCPRR, Ran Coble, is also the President of the GRA.
So congratulations for giving yourself an award!
And to give yourself an award for a questionable study that ignored many of the unique qualities of charter schools is pretty ballsy as well. (For more on problems with the report, see this op-ed by Lindalyn Kakadelis that ran in the Charlotte Observer. See also this post by Max Borders).
