Charter Schools-worth the cost?


Are charter schools an effective use of local tax dollars?   Research shows questionable academic results:

Nearly half of the charter schools nationwide have results that are no different from the local public school options and over a third, 37 percent, deliver learning results that are significantly worse than their student would have realized had they  remained in traditional public schools.- CREDO study, Stanford University 2009 (emphasis added)

The State Board of Education will determine whether to overturn the duly elected Blount County Board of Education’s decision on the proposed charter school at a public hearing:

  • 11:30 a.m.
  • November 29th
  • Blount County Schools Central Office, 831 Grandview Drive.
