Virtual charter school hearing this morning

UPDATE: The hearing was moved to 2:30 p.m. this afternoon, at the Wake County Courthouse.

It’s a big news day, no doubt, as  we wait to find out if the U.S. Supreme Court will release its decisions on the constitutionality on the Affrodable Care Act and Arizona immigration laws.

Adding to that on the state level is a hearing scheduled for this morning on what will be the state’s first online-only public charter school to be run by Wall Street’s K12, Inc., a giant in the virtual education company.

A Wake judge will hear arguments for and against the virtual charter school this morning, after an administrative law judge gave the virtual school final approval as a result of the N.C. Board of Education mishandling the company’s application. (For more background, read this post I wrote on Friday).

I’ll be at the court hearing, and you can follow the happenings via Twitter – @SarahOvaska or under the hashtag #ncvirtual.

    The selling, or selling out by GOP legislators, of NC public education begins. The goal of Berger, Stam, and Tillis, is to continually slap the people of NC in the face.
