Charter school cap may change PDF Print
Wednesday, 19 December 2007 21:45

A state panel recommended that lawmakers loosen the current law that limits the number of charter schools to 100, the Associated Press reports.

The compromise, presented Wednesday, recommends the number of charters be increased by up to six annually, with more permitted as existing charter students at those schools perform well on standardized tests. The Blue Ribbon Commission on Charter Schools also asked lawmakers to be more aggressive in closing schools that have low test scores and don’t improve. Local state Senator Joe Sam Queen is among commission members in favor of a loosened cap. He says the change would allow charters to grow, but grow at a “controlled and manageable rate.”
