Weast recommends against two charters
Montgomery County schools Superintendent Jerry D. Weast on Thursday recommended that two charter school applications be turned down, after a review panel also recommended against their approval, the Washington Post's Michael Birnbaum reports.
The Montgomery County Board of Education, which has final say over the decision, will discuss and vote on the applications on Tuesday.
There are no charter schools in Montgomery County, even though charters, which are privately run but publically funded, have flourished across the border in D.C.
Global Garden and Crossway Community Montessori are the two applicants. If the Board of Education turns them down, they will be able to appeal to the Maryland State Board of Education.
