In the Philadelphia Inquirer James Osborne details the problems with the charter application process and how the involvement of the National Association of Charter School Authorizers really muddies the waters:
- LOCAL DISTRICTS get a say in what happens to their schools
- We take a look at some real data as to how the charters that are already up and running are doing.
- These National and State Associations and Alliances and the big money they represent back off and let the PEOPLE OF NEW JERSEY decide what makes sense in our state
- The New Jersey Charter School Program Act of 1995 gets a much needed overhaul which includes the input of groups like the Education Law Center and Save Our Schools NJ, not the aforementioned Associations and Alliances
...I'm with Jersey Jazzman, Senator Weinberg and Stan Karp. I say we end this. Now. It's time for the New Jersey Charter School Moratorium. Say it with me. No new applications on April 2nd.
