Strangling another charter school
Blogger Carol A.O. Wolf reports the imminent demise of the Patrick Henry School for Science and Art in Richmond, a charter apparently about to be killed, like many charters, by the local school board before it ever got started.
I have not been able to check the arguments for and against this charter proposal, and would be happy to hear from those better informed. But Wolf supplies some interesting information on this and other issues facing Richmond. Virginia has just elected a governor who compaigned on a pro-charter platform, something you don't see very often. It will be interesting if he uses this case to further his effort to deny school boards total control over who gets a charter and who doesn't.
