Petition Closed

There has been a wealth of misinformation concerning this matter and based on the facts, we are OPPOSED to charter schools coming into the Orange Mound community and operating Hanley Elementary and Cherokee Elementary.  We risk erasing the relationships that have been forged by students, teachers, parents, and administration. There are also unanswered questions about charter schools ability to provide services to special needs students and losing our right to address issues before our local elected school board. There is also the issue of a private company having a 10 year license to operate our public schools and receiving public dollars.

Letter to
Concerned Citizens of Orange Mound
Stop conversion of Orange Mound schools to charter schools
