Heads of four Oklahoma City charter schools will present “school choice expansion” ideas to the metro school district board of education at Monday’s meeting.
According to the article linked below:
Charter schools are still public schools but are governed by an independent board.
They are given greater flexibility in their operations but also greater accountability for performance.
This quote was not attributed to anyone. I’d like to know in what ways charter schools have “greater accountability for performance?”
OKLAHOMA CITY – A battle is brewing over a proposal dealing with education in Oklahoma City.
The president of the Oklahoma City chapter of the American Federation of Teachers said he’s concerned about an item on the agenda for the Oklahoma City Public School Board meeting next Monday night.
Ed Allen sent an e-mail to all the members of his union on Thursday saying, “If your school becomes a charter, it is possible you will lose your position.”
