Initiative Measure No. 1240 concerns public charter schools.
I will write a separate thread but let me just say that I don't care if you like charters or not - this is one scary and vague piece of work. It's pretty shocking to see what could be allowed to happen. Like the bill in the Legislature, this initiative is bad news.
- Board retreat from last Saturday
- underenrolled schools - do we really know why they are underenrolled? The district seems to have left a couple of schools hung out to dry
- who's next to endorse charters? Could be a City Councilperson and/or a parent group
