Gov. Newsom asks to review impact of California charter schools on district finances

This is what we know about charter schools:

  1. The quality of the education is better than that of regular government/union schools.
  2. The cost of education is less—no crazy unions rules or mandates.
  3. Teachers have higher take home pay—they do not pay union dues, they keep the money they earn

Now the Democrats are going to use a “report”, that they, not independent researchers will create that makes it looks like charter schools destroy government education (they do, but in a good way for the students).  It will misrepresent the financial savings—claiming the money used to give a good education could be used for union demands and mediocre education.  No need to spend money on a report—the unions have published numerous “studies” showing the extortion of teachers and the community is a good thing for students.

“In one fallout from the recently settled strike of teachers in Los Angeles, Gov. Gavin Newsom has called on State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond to establish a panel of experts to examine the impact of charter school growth on district finances.

The panel will have four months to look at the issue, and to report back to Newsom by July 1. Thurmond has not yet announced who will be on the panel, but its formation raises the likelihood that California’s charter school laws may undergo revision over the coming year.  This would be the first time there has been an in-depth look at the financial impact of charter schools since passage of California’s first charter law in 1992.”
