Shifting oversight of NC charter schools

2-BoardsMembers of the Senate Education/Higher Education committee are meeting today to discuss Senate Bill 337 – legislation sponsored by Senators Jerry Tillman and Dan Soucek that would create a new board, independent of the State Board of Education to oversee public charter schools throughout the state.

Rob Schofield writes about what’s at stake with this bill in our latest Weekly Briefing: A poisonous prescription.

Policy Watch’s education reporter Lindsay Wagner is covering the meeting where Superintendents will be  addressing the committee about their concerns. You can follow Wagner on Twitter @LindsayWagnerNC.

    This can be undone when we get rid of these idiots, right? Going from one of the best educated states to one of the least in less than One Generation – the NC GOP and McCrory’s Cronies must be so proud. Keep them ignorant and they will vote for you. Sad days ahead I am afraid for my adopted state.
