Va. charter school committee to meet

By Washington Post editors

A state Board of Education committee that reviews applications for new public charter schools will meet for the first time since the passage of legislation that encourages the formation of such schools.

The charter school committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday afternoon. The panel will hear from several national charter-school advocates and review other states' charter-school policies and procedures. It also will continue to determine how Virginia will implement new legislation that would expand the state's role in the charter school approval process.

The legislation passed this year gives the state Department of Education a role in advising prospective charter-school providers on their applications before they go up for approval before local school boards. The local boards would retain ultimate authority to approve such schools.

The measure was among Gov. Bob McDonnell's cornerstone educational initiatives.

Please Virgina Charter School Board, WATCH OUT for Gulen managed Charter schools in the USA. Pinnacle Academy is a Gulen managed school. Gulen is the most dangerous Islamic Imman in the world, who is managing 97+ schools in the USA. Teachers are from Turkey, we pay their HB-1 Visas, they are not credentialed, American children are learning Turkish language, singing and dancing and performing in the USA and in Turkey. BEWARE of the Gulen Movement in America!!!!
