State education department asks board to yank Abramson’s charter–

In a written recommendation to the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, or BESE, acting state Superintendent Ollie Tyler said an investigation launched last month has uncovered evidence that Abramson has failed to comply with state law, board policy and its charter contract.

I doubt if Abramson is the only charter in town not in compliance with state law or policies or contracts.

On WWNO’s local “news” moment, it was claimed that the RSD would “now” be more active in supervising charter schools and the contracts they award. I thought that was what they were supposed to be doing. Why is it news that charter schools will be properly supervised and visited unexpectedly and held accountable to their students, their parents, and the community at large?
