Resolution Asks to Investigate Charter in San Francisco

CaliforniaA key vote is coming up this week for the San Francisco Board of Education. “Resolution 186-26A2 mandates a full and open investigation of how charter schools impact San Francisco students and communities fiscally, educationally, and socio-emotionally. The policy also mandates a charter school oversight committee to increase transparency and accountability in existing charter schools.” Anabel Agloro Kingwood, Policy Director at Coleman Advocates for Children and Youth, a San Francisco-based student and parent-led organization advancing racial and economic justice in schools and communities, says “independently run charter schools exacerbate this funding crisis by siphoning off limited per-student taxpayer dollars from traditional public schools without being held to the same standards.”
