School reform flies high with Huizenga

The Claremont Institute and XJet World hosted a full house as we welcomed J.C. Huizenga, founder of National Heritage Academies, for an executive briefing on educational excellence through entrepreneurship, Thursday, Nov. 29, at Centennial Airport south of Denver. Here's more on Huizenga's charter-school success story across the country... more on his company's first Colorado school at Reunion in Adams County... and more on the XJet concept, which founders Josh Stewart and Alex Cranberg say has taken wing on the same competitive market principles as parental choice in education.

Claremont president Brian Kennedy helped John Andrews keynote the event, as guests lunched in a gleaming hanger with Citation and Falcon jets parked a few steps from the tables.
