Florida’s charter schools were sold as saviors. Over 280 have failed and now another 76 are teetering financially and if that’s saving us then please stop.
In a related story the state made it easier for district’s to ask about potential charters financials and past failures. Um charters have been around for 17 years now, and now we think it’s a good time to start asking those questions? Wasn’t the first hundred failures enough?
Again from the Tampa Times: The rule will make the process easier for school districts, which sometimes can miss background information when they review applications.
Instead of stacking the deck for these (as a group) failures isn’t it time we said enough and invested in our public schools instead? I mean with the record charter schools have what do we really have to lose?
