Red Bank Charter School approved by state for five-year renewal

House Bill 520 could legalize charter schools in the state of Kentucky

Four experts faced off in a live debate Wednesday night on a range of issues that swirl around charter schools-whether for-profit schools work, what's best for student achievement, and if charters lead to innovation. And the audience's answer was "yes".

The debate, sponsored by Intelligence Squared U.S., will be podcast and an edited version will be distributed to more than 220 public radio stations nationwide.

Senate Bill 107 would grant sweeping powers to the governor to abolish every public educational governing board in Kentucky, including those at state universities, the Kentucky Board of Education and the Council on Postsecondary Education.

At Hiawatha College Prep in Minneapolis, a school in the Hiawatha Academies charter school network, enrollment rose by 195 percent in the last five years.

In two separate letters sent to the applicant, Acting Commissioner Kimberley Harrington said that the applications have "undergone a comprehensive review by a team of New Jersey Department of Education (Department) personnel and a qualified external reviewer".

This is the second year the schools were approved to expand.

The Kentucky Charter Schools bill HB520 has passed the House 56-39.

The public charter schools will be open to all students in the area with preference given to students residing in the district, those who are eligible for free or reduced priced lunch, and students attending persistently low-achieving schools.

For the past few months, two groups have been at odds over the way the RBCS was run. Out of almost 200 schools, DPS has 57 charter schools and another 40 "innovation schools" under its umbrella. "It feels like somebody has stolen that from us".

McClure said charter advocates believed removing the compliance with general education laws was " a housekeeping item".

Air strikes said to target al Qaeda in Yemen
There was no immediate word of casualties in the Sawmaa and Shaqra strikes. Four suspected militants standing outside the house were killed, he said.

Carney says he's optimistic about the bill's chances in the Republican-controlled legislature, but acknowledges the bill has drawn "fairly strong" pushback. "These decisions reflect this Administration's continued commitment to hold low-performing charter schools accountable, while expanding access for New Jersey families to high-quality charter schools".

In response to a request for comment, the charter decried the decision as "extremely disappointing and completely unwarranted" and that the school has " provided a safe and enriching learning environment with a constantly improving education option for the children of Camden".

The Clark County School District wants incoming charters to consult with the district before a new school is built. That charter school is affiliated with CSMI Education Management in Chester, Pennsylvania, the same company that operates the Atlantic Community Charter School in Galloway Township. "And what we should also be talking about is how charter schools exacerbate the inequality that we see in schools". Our state was among the first in the nation to authorize the autonomous public schools, through bipartisan legislation adopted in 1992 and signed into law by then-Gov.

Dean Brockbank, a member of the state charter school board, said the charter board acted quickly to review and address the status of Franklin Discovery, holding a series of three meetings between Thursday and Saturday last week and sending school board staff to the Vineyard campus to collect information. In the final vote, 54 percent were for the motion and 40 percent were against. In the first vote of live audience members, 33 percent cast votes for the motion and 31 percent against.
