Re: “Fix for charters passes House” (TNT, 3-10).
So 1,100 students will get $6.6 million in support from the state while the other million are waiting for legislators to find adequate funding for them.
Who should come first? I guess a $100,000-a-day fine is not enough of an incentive to find the money for our public schools. Maybe these charter students would find success attending fully funded public schools that have appropriate class size.
The state Supreme Court was right: Charter schools don’t qualify for funding as common schools under state law. Why are these lawmakers spending their time trying to circumvent state law for a special interest?
Why not try to take care of real problems that affect a large number of people? Lawmakers should take care of the million who are the paramount duty of the state.
