3:05pm - 4:20pm Charter School Accountability: Common Sense Regulations & How School Districts are Pushing forward for Better Transparency, Oversight & Accountability
Saturday Oct 14
We will briefly present public opinion research that shows broad bi-partisan support for common sense charter school legislative reforms. Panelists will offer perspectives from different positions in three California school districts. Panelists include a school district superintendent, a school board member and a parent. They will describe how current charter law in California prevents accountability and harms existing district schools. They will also describe their work under the current law and organize at the grassroots to make charters more accountable and protect public schools.
