This is the second post about what’s actually in the much-discussed New York State charter schools bill (S.7678/A.10928). Read about the attack on zombie charter schools in Pt. 1.
The charter schools bill that the NYS Senate approved this week doesn’t just lift the cap on charter schools, it addresses concerns about charter school transparency head-on.
Our friends at the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools have a new report out that ranks that states’ charter schools law. New York comes in at #8 out of 40.
The report mentions two problems: no money for school facilities, and a restrictive cap on the number of charter schools. We couldn’t agree more.
