Respect Local Control: Stop the State Charter School Authorizer HB702/SB830

This legislation, which applies to every county in the state, would allow a newly appointed panel to override our locally elected school boards' decisions regarding charter schools. The state charter panel would have sole oversight of charter schools it approves, meaning local tax dollars would be obligated to support schools with no local input or control. Decisions about schools and the use of local tax dollars should be left to local officials, elected by local citizens, who understand the needs of our unique communities.
